Brandywine Festival returns September 9-10


Nearly 200 artists and crafters will display their works at the 56th Brandywine Festival of the Arts on September 9-10. The event in the Josephine Gardens of Wilmington’s Brandywine Park will feature paintings, jewelry, pottery, photography and other works.

There will be live music by local performers, food vendors and children’s activities. Claymont painter Rick Phillips, founder of the Darley Art Center, will be the featured artist. His works will be up for sale and displayed prominently on the festival grounds.

While most festival participants are from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey, the festival typically draws artists from at least a dozen states. The festival, begun in 1961 as a street fair in downtown Wilmington, is produced by Barry Schlecker of Barry’s Events.

The show was named Best Art Show and Sale 2015 Editor’s Pick for Upstate by Delaware Today’s Best of Delaware.

Hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10. For more information, including a schedule of performing musicians, see www.brandywinearts.com or visit Brandywine Festival of the Arts on Facebook. A portion of the proceeds from the festival will be donated to Friends of Wilmington Parks.
