HOCKESSIN ART FESTIVAL

THANK YOU!
THE 2019 HOCKESSIN ART FESTIVAL WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
We couldn't have done it without you and we look forward to seeing you in 2020!

The Wilmington & Western Railroad's Hockessin Art Festival is a fundraising effort to benefit the railroad. Our all-volunteer Wilmington & Western operates steam- and diesel-powered trains year-round on 10 miles of track through the scenic Red Clay Valley.

Each year, over 25 artists display and sell limited edition prints, original watercolors, oils, acrylics, pastels, sculpture, fine jewelry and mosaics. A wide range of styles and prices are available. 30% of all art sales go directly to the operation of the Wilmington & Western!
