Great Lakes Beach Glass Festival

We have teamed up with Jennifer and Terri Reed from Relish, Inc. in Erie, PA and are offering this sister show to their Great Lakes Beach Glass & Coastal Arts Festival, to begin April 2018 and run every other year, opposite the Erie show. In the same style as the Great Lakes show, which has seen amazing success, we are offering the best sea glass and beach glass vendors from all across the country and Canada, and will host lectures and a Shard Contest, and offer live music.
