February 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
In the heart of the land where canneries were situated at every crossroads, the 2nd Annual Seafood and Canning Show and Sale will be held on Sunday, February 17th at the East New Market Volunteer Fire Department from 10 am until 4 pm. Vendors and displays from Havre de Grace to the Eastern Shore of Virginia will be on hand for this agriculture and heritage related event. Collectors of canning and seafood related memorabilia as well as those who love the history, art and culture of this time period in Delmarva history must plan to attend. Related collectables and collectors are encouraged to take part.
The connection to this heritage will be evident with the quality tokens, labels, crates, cans, ephemera that will be offered for sale. Exhibitors and dealers will be on hand at this event and can be expected to share the stories of the businesses and the families that relate to their offerings. To those who have not experienced this particular history or hobby, this will be a perfect time to become introduced.
