Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival
Event Description:
The 40th Annual Art's Festival in downtown Bethany Beach will be held September 8, 2018 from 10am - 5pm. This year's event includes over 100 fine artists featuring paintings, wood work, metal, clay, baskets, jewelry, porcelain, and more! 

Silent Auction
The annual event also serves as a fundraiser for the arts programs at four local elementary schools. The silent auction is comprised of pieces donated by participating artists, and is hosted on the Bethany Beach Bandstand from 10am - 2pm. 

Meet the Artist

Support art education by capping off the 40th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Festival Weekend at the Meet the Artist Brunch on Sunday, September 9th at Good Earth Market. Learn more about local artist, John Donato, and his last ten years working as an artist. All guests will enjoy a cash bar and a special brunch menu provided by Good Earth Market Chef Nino Mancari. All proceeds benefit art programs in local schools. Info & Tickets here.

Parking is available in down town Bethany Beach. The Town of
Bethany Beach will run the normal trolley schedule. Due to the
popularity of the show, St. Ann's Catholic Church has graciously offered
their lots to our visitors only a 10 minute walk to town.

We are looking for volunteers throughout the day to assist with parking, artists check-in, information booths, silent auction, and clean up. View the list of volunteer positions and times here. Volunteer orientation will be held on Wednesday, August 29th at the Chamber office at 5:00 pm. Contact events@bethany-fenwick.org with questions.

Thank you!

  • Thank you to Delmarva Two-Way Radio to allow staff and volunteers to communicate throughout the day to provide the smoothest show possible!
