Take time to explore the event’s online auction, which can be viewed in the DeWitt Gallery during the Holiday Fair or anytime online. Participating event artists have generously donated a piece of their artwork to be auctioned off, with the proceeds supporting RAL’s exhibition and education programs. Bids may be placed online, with the auction closing at 4pm on Sunday, November 5. Be sure to check back often as additional items are added.


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.’


New this year! A ticketed Preview Night will be held from 4-7pm on Friday, November 3. As a fundraiser for the Art League, your $75 preview ticket will give you early access to the artists’ booths to shop as well as complimentary refreshments and drinks in each building on campus. Tickets to the Friday Preview Night–which are limited–are good for return entry the entire weekend of the Holiday Fair.


General admission to the event begins Saturday, November 4 and the entry fee of $5 per adult, which supports our year-round exhibition and education programs, permits entry to the event all weekend. There is no charge for children under the age of 12. Tickets must be purchased at the door.
