2021 Sponsor Information Chesapeake Bay Chapter

For 33 years we have been delighting young and old with our antique and classic crafts. In 2021, we are anticipating record breaking crowds as nearby shows have sold out prior to opening! Our exhibitors and members are eager to get out and make this the best year ever!

We also are excited to offer a Sub Sponsor Program that will allow our sponsors to also help local businesses that have been affected by the pandemic. If you choose to be a Premier LEAD Sponsor your company will be featured as a business that helps other businesses in their time of need. With record numbers of small businesses folding wouldn’t be great to showcase your brand as the business “that cares for small business”?

Please let us know what we can do to help you become part of this great network!
