Larry Anderson Memorial Hockessin Art Festival

Larry Anderson Memorial Hockessin Art Festival
Sunday, Feb 25, 2024 from 10:00am to 4:00pm

The Hockessin Art Festival is an annual fundraising effort to benefit the Wilmington & Western Railroad. More than 20 local 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 supporting the Wilmington & Western.

The Wilmington & Western is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, and although we receive a significant portion of our income from ticket sales, we cannot rely on passenger revenue alone. The income raised from the Art Festival supports our train operations, restoration projects, track maintenance and much more.

While attending the Art Festival, take a break from shopping by riding the Art Festival Express. Our historic train will depart from outside the Art Festival, and our friendly train crew will take you on a 40-minute round-trip through the towns of Yorklyn and Ashland.
