There will be several stages for music and dance during the event. Food vendors will be offering up delectable Eastern Shore cuisine while local restaurants in the Main Street Historic District will be open for business. This juried event displays paintings, photography, ceramics, drawing/pastel, fiber/textiles, glass, jewelry, leather, wood, metal, mixed media, printmaking, sculpture, and found objects; even heritage arts such as blacksmithing. Artists and artisans travel from all over Delmarva, with dozens returning to the event year after year, to fill this beautiful waterfront venue with creative and unique artwork for show and sale.
Visitors will also find an array of booths featuring area nonprofits on hand to share their excellent work with event visitors and sign up for trips that day on the Skipjack Nathan of Dorchester.
Artisan, food, and nonprofit groups who are interested in participating in Showcase are invited to fill out the online registration forms or download the applications here and mail or walk them into DCA during its business hours. Contact Melissa Cooperman with any questions at [email protected]
