Black Friday Shopping Event Highlighting Local Artists Returns for the 8th year in Dewey Beach.


The Developing Artist Collaboration (DAC,) a Rehoboth based Artist Development Non-Profit, is returning to Dewey Beach on Black Friday Weekend with their popular holiday shopping event, Dewey Sip & Shop.

An event that started 8 years ago as a small collection of emerging Artists selling gifts at The Starboard, has grown to feature over 100 Artist vendors, and welcome hundreds of guests a day from all over the region.

Taking place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Black Friday Weekend, this event provides an enjoyable alternative to the typical frenzy of big box stores, giving shoppers the opportunity to find one of a kind gifts and purchase them directly from the talented Artists that made them.

Sip & Shop also features live local music, a bar where shoppers can purchase creative cocktails and beer provided by Dewey Beer Co., and The Out of the Box DIY Bar, where guests can create their own amazing Art.

DIY, Merch, and Bar sales all fund DAC's mission of elevating Artists.

"This is the event our Artists prepare all year for," says DAC founder, Leah Beach "it's incredible seeing shoppers so excited to support local Artists, and so rewarding seeing our Artists be so successful in selling their work."

This year, the event will take place in the parking lot of The Dewey Beach Lions Club, allowing for a larger tent that can accommodate the growing number of shoppers and Artists.

Dewey Sip & Shop is free to attend, with free parking all throughout Dewey Beach.

More information about DAC and Dewey Sip & Shop can be found on the Non-Profit's website,
