Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival set for Sept. 7

The Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce and Schell Brothers will present the 41st Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in downtown Bethany Beach.

The annual event hosts more than 100 juried 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 and jewelry.

“After the cancelation of the 40th-anniversary event due to dangerous weather conditions, we are so happy to be continuing the tradition of this nationally-ranked festival,” said Lauren Weaver, executive director of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce.

Supported by Carl M. Freeman Companies, the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival will also include a silent auction featuring works of art donated by the festival’s artists and local businesses. All proceeds from the silent auction will support the arts programs of five schools in the Quiet Resorts region.

There will be a check presentation to the art teachers of each school at the Chamber’s Family Night Out on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at Lord’s Landscaping. The public is being invited to attend the event to celebrate the arts in the community.

Festival guests are being encouraged to shop not only the festival but local businesses, as well as explore the area’s many local art galleries. A business directory can be requested, or found on to plan a fun-filled weekend. For more information on the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival, visit or call (302) 539-2100.
