Eastern Shore Sea Glass and Coastal Arts Festival at CBMM
The 9th annual Eastern Shore Sea Glass and Coastal Arts Festival in St. Michaels, Md. will be held on the beautiful waterfront location at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The festival takes place at CBMM on Saturday, April 4, 2020 from 10–5 pm. and Sunday, April 5, 2020 from 10-4 pm. The venue also expands the festival to include lectures, live music, food, and libations. Weather permitting, scenic river boat tours can be taken for additional fee.
“The festival at the Maritime Museum was a huge success last year and we can't wait for the 2020 festival.” said Eastern Shore Sea Glass and Coastal Arts Festival Founder and Organizer Kim Hannon. “I’m so excited about co-hosting the event with the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum again this year. CBMM’s 18-acre waterfront campus will offer plenty of room and amazing views and exhibits, in addition to new things we are working on for the festival.”
The Sea Glass Festival will feature more than 70 artisans many from the local Delmarva area, and others travelling from as far away as New England—who will exhibit and sell coastal and sea-glass related jewelry, home décor, art, and more.
The festival also includes educational lectures about sea glass and its history along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Miles River cruises aboard CBMM’s 1920 buyboat Winnie Estelle will be offered throughout the two-days.
Boat rides, food and beverages will be available for purchase, including beer, wine, and cocktails. Additional free event parking will be available at St. Michaels High School, with a complimentary shuttle service to and from CBMM running throughout the day.
