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

Get the Miller keg trailer or the Budweiser truck in there and forget about the "preppie crap" tasting like some type of fruit....if I want something that taste like fruit and grains I'll order a damn salad or a bowl of cereal!

I hope they have a plan to keep the goose poop cleaned up. It is everywhere on the riverwalk.
