Sea to Shore Seaglass Festival!

July 25, 2015

Come celebrate the Sea to Shore Sea Glass Festival in Kentville and share your Sea Glass treasures with fellow beachcombers! Come celebrate the oceans gifts at Nova Scotia’s Sea to Shore Sea Glass Festival – July 25-26, 2015, 10am-4pm daily.

What is seaglass you ask?? Seaglass are pieces of glass from littering broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years until all of their edges are rounded off, and the slickness of the glass has been worn to a frosted appearance, then wash up from our strong tides onto our beaches around the world waiting to be picked up and made into something creative or just collected for pleasure.

This 2 day event, taking place in Kentville Center Square, will feature sea glass creations, ocean inspired artisans, musicians, coastal artists, driftwood furniture, seafood tastings, guest speakers, sea glass shard contests with top prize of $200.00 and much more.. so mark it on your calendar and tell your beachcomber friends to do as well!
