Holiday Fair

The 36th Annual Holiday Fair Fine Craft Show, to be held November 7 & 8, 2020, will feature a variety of artisans exhibiting and selling their work, including jewelry, glasswork, ceramics, woodworking, mixed media, and decorative and wearable fiber creations.

Patrons can stroll the campus and find artists throughout the historic Homestead, Chambers Studio, and the Corkran and Tubbs galleries to select the perfect gifts for family, friends and themselves. Please be aware that masks are required for entry into all buildings and that numbers of patrons will be monitored to ensure social distancing indoors. One-way entry and exits to each building will be marked.


Participating Holiday Fair artists will soon be posted–along with links to their online Virtual Booths, which will open before the on-campus November event. Please check back as we post links to this year’s array of artisans.  


Dogfish Head will be offering craft beer in our ‘Paynter’s Pub.’


There is a weekend entry fee of $5 per adult. There is no charge for children under the age of 12. Tickets can be purchased at the door.


Each year at the Holiday Fair, attendees enjoy taking their chance at winning a select piece of artwork that has been donated by our juried artists. This year, we will offer an exciting online auction of these items–and many more–on which supporters can bid. View the auction offerings online in the weeks leading up to the on-campus event, and come to view them during the event in our Children’s Studio. Bids can be place at the event or from the convenience of your home. Check back to view auction items, which will be posted shortly.
