The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce will present the 44th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 10, in downtown Bethany Beach.
This annual event hosts more than 100 juried artists displaying and selling their work. The featured artists bring unique creations representing a variety of different mediums including painting, photography, woodwork, metalwork, clay, jewelry and more.
“We are so excited to welcome back the artists and guests for the 44th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival. The annual event supports the arts and local businesses, and raises money for local school art programs in the Quiet Resorts. The Bethany Beach boardwalk is a beautiful backdrop for these amazing artists to display their work,” said Lauren Weaver, Bethany-Fenwick chamber executive director.
The festival will also include a silent auction sponsored by Jayne’s Reliable, and will feature works of art generously donated by the festival’s artists and local businesses. All proceeds from the silent auction will support the art programs at five local schools – Lord Baltimore Elementary School, Southern Delaware School of the Arts, John M. Clayton Elementary School, Phillip C. Showell Elementary School and Selbyville Middle School.
A check presentation to the art teachers of each school will be made during the chamber’s family night out Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Millville Boardwalk. All are invited to attend the event to celebrate the arts in the community.
