The DCA presents The Deltaville Seafood Festival which includes seafood vendors, arts and crafts, and family focused activities. The festival will be located in the Deltaville Community Village and at the Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park.
Among other activities, the Festival will feature on-the-water activities for kayaks and paddle board enthusiasts from 11-2 at the Deltaville Maritime Museum. Families who already own kayaks and paddle boards are encouraged to bring their ‘yaks and SUPS to launch and tour Mill and Jackson Creeks. Timed-run contests will be held for prizes and honor. For those who don’t own their own, free loaner kayaks and paddle boards will be available at the museum, thanks to many friends of the event.
Other activities on the waterfront include tours on the Explorer, boat rides, and chats with Capt. Willard Norris, one of the last builders of Deltaville Deadrise boats. Capt. Norris will speak about the Chesapeake Deadrise hull and why Deltaville was once known as “The Boat-building Capital of the Chesapeake Bay.” Visitors are free to enjoy the Holly Point Nature Park at the Deltaville Maritime Museum.
The Deltaville Community Village area will hold unique arts and crafts vendors will be offering quality hand made items including paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry, and more. Festival organizers have selected unique vendors carefully to not duplicate wares. Just a couple of the many vendors participating are Burke’s Jeweler’s from Kilmarnock, and Wilton Cottage & Garden Gifts in Hartfield.
Seafood vendors for the event will also be staged at the Deltaville Community Village area. The list of vendors is outstanding and includes Strawberry Street Cafe from Richmond, Creekside Catering from Gloucester, Middlesex Lion’s Club, and Deltaville Oyster Company. The raw bar at Deltaville Oyster Company will feature national oyster shucking champion Deborah Pratt as well as her sister Clementine Boyd Macon.Read More»

The under construction Deltaville Maritime Museum exhibit building shows off her new windows as she waits for her red roofing to be installed. The opening for the entry door in the front has been set off by a covered porch and the large opening in the right side will allow exhibit and exhibit sections up to 12 feet wide and 9 feet tall to easily move in and out of the building. Roofing is scheduled to begin on Wednesday Nov 13th. The building is designed to recreate the “look” and style of the Stingray Point Hotel/Old Red Barn, an icon of Deltaville past.
Taken from the perspective of the North(back) wall of the new museum space, this picture shows the spacious “feel” of the interior. The airy center section 24’ wide and 25’ high in the center works with the two 10’ high by 24’wide side sections to give the room a unique look. At the far end, you can see the entry door and hall bounded on the left and right by the bathrooms and on top by the mechanical room. Reception, information desk and Museum offices will be just to the left after you enter. The new library space can be seen to the right through large door opening past the wood columns. Everything else will be exhibit area. The new roofing pans, caps and trim can be seen sorted and stacked on the floor.(photo by Powell)
