The Lewes Historical Society will hold the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 24 and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 25 at the Cape May Lewes Ferry Terminal, 43 Cape Henlopen Drive, Lewes.
The festival attracted more than 4,000 visitors last year. This year, the festival’s eighth, will feature nearly 70 sea glass artists, joined by other coastal artists including decoy carvers and waterfowl artists.
Artisans craft pieces of jewelry, stained glass and other decorative treasurers from sea glass; vendors come from along the East Coast and as far away as the Virgin Islands, Greece and Italy. The fest also will feature live music and food.
Festival admission is $5 per person each day, to be paid at the gate; ages younger than 12 are free. Event parking will be available at Kings Highway near Cape Henlopen High School. Ferry buses will start running at 8 a.m. until at least 4:30 p.m. June 24 and 3:30 p.m. June 25. Shuttle service is free.
In addition to the shuttles, regular Ferry bus service will take place with the downtown stop at Market Street near St Peter's Episcopal Church. The wait time should be no more than 15 minutes.
