The first annual Camden Waterfront Arts and Wine Festival was hosted Saturday at Wiggins Park Marina in Camden, NJ. Located along scenic Delaware River around 60 booths of fine arts, crafts, jewelry and sculpture lined up with artists from New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware areas. Local New Jersey wineries and brewing companies offered samples of their wine, beer and rum to guests.
Renaissance Craftables, the company responsible for producing the Haddonfield Crafts and Fine Art Festival, partnered with Camden County to create this year’s waterfront festival. With hopes that this arts and wine Festival becomes an annual event that attracts tens of thousands of people, Marcy Boroff, owner of Renaissance Craftables, says she wishes the festival will grow each year and becomes the main stay of the Camden Waterfront.
“This is a part of the renaissance of Camden; developing the waterfront as a tourist area and having more businesses and living arrangements is to benefit all of Camden, the city and the county as well. It is about revitalizing the city. Camden is a beautiful spot that a lot of people haven’t been to. Festivals like this help build up Camden Waterfront area as a tourist attraction as it should be, because it’s beautiful” she said.
