The Wilmington & Western Railroad's Hockessin Art Festival is a fundraising effort to benefit the railroad. The all-volunteer Wilmington & Western operates steam- and diesel-powered trains year-round on 10-miles of track through Delaware's historic Red Clay Valley.
Over 25 artists will be displaying and selling limited edition prints, original watercolors, oils, acrylics, pastels, sculpture, fine jewelry, mosaics and more! 30% of all art sales go directly to the operation of the Wilmington & Western.
