Weekend Festival

The Lewes Polar Bear Plunge Weekend Festival started several years ago when Bears began trekking down to the beach towns on Friday or Saturday and were looking for things to do.

With Bears arriving as early as Friday night or Saturday morning, the Weekend Festival offers several fun and family-friendly activities to do and it has turned into an annual tradition for many.

Whether it's enjoying fine food and spirits, participating in one of the several activities leading up to the Plunge, or just coming down to be part of the festive atmosphere, the Polar Bear Plunge Weekend Festival has become one of the most popular weekend celebrations in the First State.
