2022 Boast the Coast Maritime Festival

October 1st, 2022 - 11:00 am to 2:00 pm


Boast the Coast was conceived in 1996 to showcase Lewes’ nautical heritage and to feature activities that complemented the already long-established University of Delaware’s annual “Coast Day” event.  Coast Day takes place the first Sunday in October with Boast the Coast always on the day before.

There are a number of free activities associated with Boast the Coast taking place in 1812 Park adjacent to the City Dock on the canal from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  

The annual Lewes Merchants’ Fall Sidewalk Sale has long been associated with Boast the Coast. It is a three-day event, wrapped around Saturday’s Boast the Coast events, beginning on Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The majority of the retail businesses in the Historic Lewes Business District participate in this annual event.
