“We are so excited to welcome back the artists and guests for the 44th Annual Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival. The annual event supports the arts, local businesses, and raises money for local school art programs in the Quiet Resorts. The Bethany Beach Boardwalk is a beautiful backdrop for these amazing artists to display their work” says Lauren Weaver, Executive Director of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce.


The Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival will also include a silent auction sponsored by Jayne’s Reliable; and will feature works of art generously donated by the festival’s artists and local businesses.
