Over 125 artists and artisans from around the country display and sell their fine art and fine crafts amidst the Rehoboth Art League's 3.5 acre historic wooded location in Henlopen Acres.

The annual Outdoor Show is a juried event yielding exceptional work, and many of the artists actively enjoy demonstrating their creativity during each day of the show. Historically, work was hung on snow fences surrounding the property, and some artists maintain this homage to history, while others display their work in booths throughout RAL’s grounds. The Outdoor Show is not just a fine art and fine crafts show, but is a fun summer event full of activities, including great food, music, historic tours, face-painting, artist demonstrations, gallery exhibits, beautiful gardens, the historic Homestead, and a Dogfish Head Beer Garden.
