Silent Auction: Jayne’s Reliable

Each year, the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival includes a silent auction, which serves as a fundraiser for the arts programs in the area’s four local elementary schools. Sponsored by Jayne’s Reliable, the silent auction is comprised of pieces donated by participating artists, as well as items donated by local businesses. The silent auction will take place on the Bethany Beach Bandstand from 10 am – 2 pm. 


This event would not be possible without the help of our many wonderful volunteers each year! Volunteer positions are available throughout the day to assist with parking, artist check-in, information booths, silent auction, and clean-up.
