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»
