Enjoy two days of cultural heritage, fine arts, and music in Great Bridge Lock Park, located on the Intracoastal Waterways.  Visit the many guilds and learn firsthand how things are made! 

Exhibitors and vendors from throughout the Commonwealth will display and sell their unique crafts ranging from: weaving, woodworking, basket-making, pottery, quilters, gardening, photography, silversmith jewelry artistry, glass blowing, sheep-shearing, and more.   Local musicians will be featured throughout the weekend, and a variety of food vendors will be present. There will also be a historic Batteau (a flat boat used during colonial times for transport) on display at the Waterways Heritage Festival.

Please join us as we celebrate the rich cultural heritage of our region!
