Preview on Friday, Feb. 23, with light refreshments and cash bar

The Wilmington & Western's Hockessin Art Festival is an annual fundraising effort to benefit the railroad.

Over 20 local artists will be displaying and selling limited edition prints, original watercolors, oils, acrylics, pastels, sculpture, fine jewelry, mosaics and more, with 30 percent of all art sales going directly to supporting the Wilmington & Western.

The Wilmington & Western is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, and while a significant source of its income comes from ticket sales, they cannot rely on passenger revenue alone.

The income raised from the Hockessin Art Festival supports our train operations, restoration projects, track maintenance and much more.

 While at the Festival, take a break from shopping by riding the Festival Express.

The vintage train will depart from outside the Festival, and our friendly train crew will take you on a 40-minute round-trip through the towns of Yorklyn and Ashland.
