The 39th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival, presented by Schell Brothers and the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce will be held on Saturday, September 9th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This annual event, located in downtown Bethany Beach, brings in over 100 artists to showcase and sell their work. The featured artists bring unique creations representing a variety of different mediums including paintings, photography, woodwork, metalwork, clay, baskets, jewelry and porcelain.
In addition to exploring the works of over 100 artists, this year’s Arts Festival will showcase a self-guided tour: Discover the Arts and Antiques Trail. The Discover the Finer Things Guide will feature a trail map in the centerfold of the publication while businesses, which create and sell fine arts and antiques, will be featured in the publication. The Discover the Finer Things Guide will be available at the Arts Festival and throughout the year at the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce Information Center as well as participating businesses along the trail.
Two charitable events will round off Saturday’s Arts Festival at the boardwalk. A Silent Auction and scholarship giveaway, will take place on the bandstand. The Silent Auction will offer works of art generously donated by the festival’s artists, with all proceeds supporting local art programs at four elementary schools in the Indian River School District. Additionally, the Chamber and the Quiet Resorts Charitable Foundation (QRCF) will award a $1,000 art scholarship for one local high school junior or senior artist. Public judging for the final prize will take place on the bandstand.
