-2018 Vendors, Artists, Artisans - Updated!-

Let's talk seriously about the show, now less than two weeks away!

The friendly and relaxed atmosphere of our festival can easily hide the fact that you are surrounded by special things everywhere you look. To truly appreciate our Vendors, Artists and Artisans, consider that most of our boat builders, restorers and suppliers come from the Annapolis area. Among our wildlife carvers are legends from the Easton, Havre de Grace and Chincoteague communities. Many of our artists are known locally, some nationally and several, internationally. Others, who've traveled from nine states from the Canadian border to Southern Florida are every bit as talented and respected for what they have to offer. Take a little time and explore the Large Tent, the Small Boat Shed and around the grounds. With over 60 exhibitors, you'll find many wonderful surprises.

There are still more coming so come back soon...
