Art & Seafood Festival set for Oct. 20

The Deltaville Maritime Museum & Holly Point Nature Park on Mill Creek will be the site of the 15th Annual Holly Point Art & Seafood Festival.

October is here, the leaves are turning and here comes the 15th Annual Holly Point Art & Seafood Festival on Saturday, October 20, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. This jewel of a festival offers original art, seafood, festival food, model trains, classic car show, live music, area maritime and history exhibits, restored workboats, creek cruises, nature trails and gardens—in short, fun, food and activities for the whole family. There is something for everyone.

It all happens at Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park at 287 Jackson Creek Road in Deltaville.

Often called the “Best Little Festival on the Peninsula,” the Art & Seafood Festival offers art, of course, from artists working in all media that’s guaranteed to appeal to everyone. But there’s also much, much more to do, see and hear at this one of a kind fall festival.

What makes this Festival a “one of a kind”? Location and diversity! For the third year all of the artists will be displaying in the scenic Waterfront Park area overlooking beautiful Mill Creek. With the fall colors and the water view, this festival offers a natural “art” of its own. Check out our nature trails, the gardens and sculptures, arbors, the Turner Fountain, fall colors, flowers, benches, picnic tables, natural waterfront, scenic Mill Creek, the spacious Pierwalk, newly completed Living Shoreline Exhibit and grassy, manicured parking areas all right on the property. It’s perfect for a family outing. The nature park and waterfront make an easy going counterpoint to the many of the artists and other exhibitions and activities.

Don’t forget the seafood! Watch the Sentinel and our website for more details as we get closer to October 20.
