The Dewey Beach Arts and Fun Festival will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday, May 8.

The free event, sponsored by the Dewey Business Partnership with support from the Town of Dewey Beach, will transform the bayside of Dagsworthy Avenue and the adjacent Dewey Beach Lions Club parking lot into a lively outdoor festival following COVID guidelines and featuring live music, food trucks and a large artist market providing shoppers with opportunities to find that perfect gift for Mother’s Day!

Attendees can visit the Artist’s Market, which will showcase the works and wares of more than 60 artists and crafters, including coastal and beach-themed art, painting, photography, mixed media, fabric, jewelry and wearable art, ceramics, wood, sea glass, stained glass, mosaics, accessories, quilting, recycled art, painted furniture, handmade soaps and more.

A Student Art Walk will take place at Dewey Beach businesses, and attendees can enjoy live music by Steve Bowers, food trucks and an outdoor seating area.

Dewey Business Partnership Executive Director Kelly Ranieri said last year’s festival was canceled due to COVID.

“We are excited to host this free, family-friendly event again to provide an opportunity to highlight the incredible local artists that are a part of our community,” she said. “With more artists than ever before, and perfect timing before Mother’s Day, we encourage everyone to come visit the 9th Annual Dewey Beach Arts and Fun Festival.”

Parking is free, and leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome. There is no rain date. Current COVID restrictions will be in effect.
