Event Details

Ridgefield Guild of Artists is kicking off a very special year by bringing back its Festive Home annual holiday extravaganza…70’s style!

The Guild turns FIFTY in 2024 with big plans in the works for a Year of Celebration! “What better way to begin and end the year-long festivities than with our time-honored holiday pop-up in the gallery barn,” says Mary Pat Devine, Guild President.

The Guild’s biggest fundraiser of the year opens Friday, November 17th, with a special preview party from 5-7pm, for an admission of $25 for pre-payment online or $30 at the door. Festive refreshments will be served. Come and get the first peek and enjoy a fun evening of celebration!

The sale continues from Saturday, November 18th through Sunday, December 17th with free admission, with holiday shopping hours, 12-5pm Tuesday through Sunday. We will be closed November 22nd and 23rd, opening again on Friday, November 24th, 25th, and 26th. Have a Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends and then come out to “shop small” with the Guild and all the local shops in beautiful downtown Ridgefield.

Four local design teams will be anchoring the rooms at Festive Home this year: Rachel Belden, Jennifer Coleman, Molly Hirsh and Jill Rae are generously donating their time and talents. “We are thrilled to have some of our favorite local designers with us this year to help bring our festive flavor to life,” says Pam Stoddart, Executive Director and Co-Chair of the event. “They plan to create special vignettes to complement our hand-crafted items and member artwork.” Since The Guild is an arts organization, we want to concentrate on, and highlight, our talented members and local artisans-at-large. Shoppers will find original artwork covering our gallery walls, hand-crafted gift items, and our traditional donated small canvases, all of which will be available for sale, and in support of our artists and the Guild.
