2021 is the 12th year for this event, and is expected to be better than ever! The Historical Society will be focusing again on the historic origins of sea glass and will be emphasizing the authenticity of shards at the show. "Chat with an Expert" special guests will join the festival: on Saturday, Pure Sea Glass author, Richard LaMotte will be available to talk with festival-goers and help to identify the origins of your special sea glass shards. On Sunday, Mary McCarthy, author and Vice President of the North American Sea Glass Association, will be our festival "expert", and will be on-hand all day for you to meet with her!
The festival will also feature over forty-five sea glass and coastal artists in various mediums such as sea glass, wood, photography, painting, ceramics, metal, and sculpture. Vendors come from up and down the East Coast.
