Annual Coast Day
Sunday, October 1, 2017 11:00am-5:00pm
University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus, 700 Pilottown Road, Lewes, DE 19958
The University of Delaware's festive Coast Day returns on Sunday, Oct. 1. Our theme this year is "Discoveries...on land, in the air and at sea."
The Annual Coast Day showcases how UD scientists, staff, and students are improving our understanding of ocean environments and serve coastal communities. Attendees can interact with researchers, tour ships, try hands-on activities and attend presentations on a range of topics.
Family-friendly activities include an event-wide treasure hunt for answers to questions about the environment and Coast Day exhibits. Children can meet sea-dwelling animals such as horseshoe crabs and dogfish sharks at the critter touch tanks. Everyone can enjoy live music, vendor displays, and seafood favorites showcased by local chefs at the Crab Cake Cook-Off and the Seafood Chowder Challenge.
This event will take place rain or shine on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 11:00am-5:00pm at University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus. Admission and parking are FREE!
