Shore Craft Beer Fest Comes to Downtown Salisbury City Seeks Design Submissions for Event Tee Shirts

Shore Craft Beer Fest Comes to Downtown Salisbury
City Seeks Design Submissions for Event Tee Shirts

Salisbury – Mayor Jake Day is pleased to announce that the City has partnered with Shore Craft Beer and Delmarva Public Radio to present the 2016 Shore Craft Beer Fest and Riverwalk Celebration on Saturday, June 18th in Downtown Salisbury.  This one-of-a-kind event will bring music, art, food, and the best craft beer on the peninsula to the City’s beautifully renovated Riverwalk.


Founded in 2014 with the aim of making the Eastern Shore a craft beer destination, Shore Craft Beer have quickly become the peninsula’s most recognizable advocates of all things locally-brewed.  For this event they have put together a who’s who lineup of local micro and craft breweries which will serve only locally produced products.  The festival will also feature food trucks, live music from the band Eastern Electric, a plein air painting event, pottery throwing, a home brewing tent, and specially brewed Salisbury hometown beer.


Unique to this year’s event will be a ribbon cutting ceremony to unveil and celebrate renovations to Salisbury’s Riverwalk.  The soon-to-be-completed $1.5 million update has been underway since the fall, and includes both cosmetic and structural fixes to the 40 year-old pedestrian walkway.


“Shore Craft Beer Fest is a great fit for Downtown Salisbury, and it presents the perfect opportunity for us to cut the ribbon on our beautiful new Riverwalk,” said Mayor Day.  “I’m excited to invite residents and visitors to come sample local craft brews and enjoy what we hope will become a summer family tradition in our Downtown.”


To help promote and commemorate the Riverwalk ribbon cutting, the City is seeking design submissions for tee shirts which will be available at the event.  Designs must focus primarily on the Riverwalk, but may incorporate the Shore Craft Beer Fest.  If you’re artistically inclined (or if you know someone who is), original artwork is due no later than June 1.  Submissions can be any medium, any size.  Physical works may be mailed to the Mayor’s Office at the address below.  To submit your design electronically, email it to

Boycott Target, Starbucks And Barnes And Noble

If you are like myself I don't want men and women getting to choose which bathroom they feel like taking a break in, then boycott those three stores. I'm sick of the Transgender conversation. If you were born with a Penis you are a man and go in the door with the man symbol, if you were born with a vagina you got to the bathroom with the Woman on it.

Justice System Has Already Failed Family Of Nicole Bennett

 June 15, 2012 this beautiful Mother of three was murdered by a monster at Bay Shore Community Church in Gumboro, DE. 4 years later and Mathew Burton her Killer has still not been to court, and has recently been given the chance to bond out by an ignorant judge in Delaware.

Nicole's loving family and friends continue to wait for the justice that Nicole deserves, and yet the criminal justice system continues to instead make them suffer by allowing this nonsense. Where is the justice???????????? 4 years to go to trial is absolutely disgusting.This lady was a beautiful light taken from this world entirely too soon and as time goes on I think many just move on not remembering her voice and love for God she spoke about in the below video.

Homeless Women in Pocomoke City Receive Bedding Relief

April 28, 2016 – Salisbury, Md. – Women at a transitional housing shelter in Pocomoke City will be sleeping better in new bedding after recently receiving a charitable donation. The Samaritan Ministries Shelter accepted a combined $3,000 in financial assistance to replace bunkbeds and mattresses.

The Community Foundation’s “Partner in Giving” program provides opportunities for donors to partner with the Foundation in supporting urgent needs in the Community.

“We are privileged to support the Samaritan Shelter and join the Community Foundation in helping to meet this critical need in Southern Worcester County,” states Marty Neat, President of First Shore Federal.

The End Of Ireton Political Career

And with the final numbers Tuesday night the curtain finally came down on Jim Ireton and his political career. Jim Ireton lost to a guy that didn't even try, didn't have a website or raise money period. Jim finally sees that he has no higher Office in his future. Jim may get his friends to vote on the Shore for him, but when it comes to any bigger Office..Jim is done.

A Democrat is not going to win anything on the Conservative shore. Jim would never have a chance to be Mayor again as Jake Day is in another class, and what he has now a simple Council seat is about all he can hope for, and that is if he hasn't pissed everyone off by immediately announcing when he won that he really was going to run for Congress.

Jim's attitude is the problem and will always be, because no matter how much he thinks he knows about Politics he has pissed enough people off like myself that we will never support anything he does period.

Ted Cruz An Example Of How Republican's Beat Themselves

Ted Cruz is the prime example of Republican's not coming together to fight for the greater good (beating Clinton) . Cruz will not win the nomination and if he does the entire delegate process is a joke.

The American people obviously want Trump and now is the time to stop the infighting on a race that's over. Republican's beat each other like this far too many times and wonder why we get Obama in offices across the Country

LESN Endorsed Candidate Wins The First District Congressional Primary

Joe Werner beat back a feisty, hard charging campaigner Jim Ireton in the Democratic Primary, without even lifting a finger.  Werner attended few events, if any at all and was pretty much a paper candidate - he did not even have a website up.

If Werner even halfway campaigns, raises a little money and maybe lifts two fingers, he may give Congressman Harris a challenge in November.  If this guy can beat a well known Mayor from the biggest city on the Shore who is well connected in Democratic circles without even trying, who knows what he is capable of accomplishing.

On the other side, what the hell happened to Ireton's campaign?  He was actively raising money, crisscrossing the district, doing all the things you are supposed to do and yet comes up short.  If you can't beat a paper candidate in a Democratic Primary as a progressive candidate, you may want to rethink how you deal with people, speak to people and treat people.

Over 2,000 Democrats voted against Ireton in his home county of Wicomico - he should have won that with 90% of the vote. 

So he becomes another addition to Wicomico County political grave yard.

Jim Ireton Concedes To John Werner

What an incredible night.  With the help of 6 Eastern Shore counties, we took about 48% of the vote.  Though I couldn’t reach Joe Werner this evening, I endorse him and wish him the best of luck against Andy Harris in the fall.  My greatest appreciation goes out to our volunteers and my family for supporting me in this incredible task.  I look forward to continuing to serve my neighbors in Council District 4 here in Salisbury.
