Holiday Fair

November 7 & November 8, 2020

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, 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.


This year, we are happy to welcome a wide variety of juried artists to our Holiday Fair. You will find more than twenty artists scattered throughout three different buildings on our campus. Their booths, which are this year distanced for safety purposes, will contain things like sea glass jewelry, basketry with found objects, decorative and functional ceramics, and, among other things, wearable fiber art. Browse a complete list of our participating artists here, and connect with them after the event for any additional purchases. 


Shopping in our Holiday Fair artists’ Virtual Booths, which was available October 10-November 5,  is now closed. Purchases made from online booths through the Rehoboth Art League will be available for pickup at the on campus event, November 7 & 8, from 10am-4pm, in the Paynter Studio. Please visit with our event volunteer, who will have your purchases available. No admission fee is required to pick-up items from virtual booths.


The Rehoboth Art League follows local and CDC COVID guidelines for operating. 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 and sanitizer will be available around campus.


The Point Coffee House and Bake Shoppe will have packaged, takeaway breakfast and lunch options, available in the Children’s Studio. Dogfish Head will be offering craft beer in our ‘Paynter’s Pub.’


There is a weekend entry fee of $5 per adult, which supports our year-round exhibition and education programs. 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 or come to view them on campus through November 8.


This year, the Rehoboth Art League is pleased to offer a raffle of exhibiting artist Linda Hill’s piece, Anna Graham in a Century of Struggle. Each Holiday Fair admission comes with one complimentary raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets may be purchased in the Corkran Gallery, where the piece is on display. This mixed media collage is mounted on wood and finished with epoxy resin, and was inspired by the 2020 centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The winning ticket for Hill’s piece will be drawn December 13 at 4pm.
