2021 is the 12th year for this event, and is expected to be better than ever! The Historical Society will be focusing again on the historic origins of sea glass and will be emphasizing the authenticity of shards at the show. The festival will feature over fifty sea glass and coastal artists in various mediums such as sea glass, wood, photography, painting, ceramics, metal, and sculpture. Vendors come from up and down the East Coast.

Plans for 2021:

  • Lectures 
  • Exhibitions 
  • Kids Area 
  • Shard Contest 
  • Collections 

Enjoy festive music and delicious food all weekend. Learn the history of sea glass and bring your glass shards and bottles, as specialists will be available to identify your treasurers on-site.

With greater environmental awareness, there has been a decline in naturally occurring sea glass, creating a great market for expensive and rare pieces. We hope to showcase these unique finds at the festival and offer opportunities for attendees to learn more about the history of sea glass. We are also proud to announce that this event is a "Plastic-Free" festival! Leave your plastic bags, straws, forks, and cups home, please!

The Lewes Historical Society invites the public to celebrate sea glass and coastal art on Saturday, June 5th, and Sunday, June 6th. For more details about the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival or more information on The Lewes Historical Society, contact 302-645-7670.
