Vendors Information

Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm
There is something for everyone at the 23rd Annual Nanticoke Riverfest. Start with supporting our Sponsors, who graciously help make this event possible. If the day is hot, and you’re looking for a way to cool off, try the vendors with ice cream cups, cones, sundaes, root beer floats, fresh squeezed lemonade, sorbets, sweet tea and shakes to name just a few cool treats. If you’re hungry, try the BBQ or crab cakes, breakfast sandwiches, wings, french fries, mini donuts, egg rolls, funnel cakes, kettle corn, and the old standbys pizza, hamburgers and hots dogs.

Stop by our downtown shops and eateries. Hard2Handle has huge subs and salads. Meet the artists of Nanticoke River Arts Gallery 107 and admire their diverse talents. You might just fall in love with a piece of artwork or become inspired to join their group. Don’t forget the Seaford Museum, you’ll be amazed to see all the history the old Post Office holds! New this year is a miniature train…come take a ride!!

There’s shopping for the whole family. We have vendors offering handmade crafts and jewelry, locally made hot sauces, scented candles, home décor, stained glass sun catchers, and much, much more. There are plenty of toys and goodies for the kids, too!

Check out the demonstrations from Super Kicks Martial Arts and a local wood carver.

Visit our exhibitors who have important information to share with you. You may discover volunteer opportunities, or find out about a valuable service available that may benefit you or a loved one. Support our civic organizations and others by purchasing raffle tickets or taking a chance on a ’69 Camaro, or prizes. Some even offer games and free giveaways.
