Schedule of Events
Périers Day - July 27th, 2014
On Sunday, July 27th, the Town of Bethany Beach will celebrate Périers Day, marking the anniversary of the twinning of the towns of Bethany Beach and Périers, France. Downtown will become reminiscent of a street in France with artists drawing caricature sketches on the boardwalk from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. and French/Jazz band laVie en Rose performing on the bandstand at 5:00. Périers, located in Normandy, France, was liberated by the US Army 90th Infantry Division on July 27th, 1944. The liberation came almost two months after the D-Day landing on Utah Beach. The twinning or "sister city" relationship between the two towns was established in August of 2010. The program is free and will take place before the evening concert on the bandstand.
September 6th, 2014
The 36th Annual Art’s Festival in downtown Bethany Beach will be held September 6, 2014 from 10am-5pm. This year’s event will include over 100 fine artists that will be featuring paintings, word work, metal, clay, baskets, jewelry, porcelain and more! The Chamber has expanded the festival to include more attractions to more parts of the town; such as a Farmer’s Market, wine tasting & children’s corner. Make sure you mark your calendar for the exciting event!
