    The Winter Fair will span three full weeks and be open from Thursday through Sunday from 10AM - 5PM from December 12 through January 5. It is open to members as well as to new first time members of the York Art Association. The fair helps The Association provide free arts programs for all ages as well as scholarships and outreach into the community. 

    Artists do not need to be present at the fair but will be assigned a table or bench that accommodates their items. The area to fill will be about 2x6 feet in size, but it is flexible space to meet anyone's needs. Artists are welcomed to host at the fair to get more involved in the sales side. Volunteers are always welcomed and appreciated to host at the fair. Registrants are invited to a holiday party to be held on Friday, the 13th of December from 5-7PM.

    We are simultaneously offering a special membership drive for anyone who wants to join in support of the arts for $30 through the end of February. The Art Association's Gift Shop is open from Thursday through Sunday from 10AM-5PM through the fair, and 12-5 PM from October through May, and summer months from June - September Daily.

    Members can register for $20, and Non-Members can register for $50. For Non-Members, the fee of $50 entitles you to a first-time only special membership offer of $30, as well as entry into the Winter Fair for $20. Membership is for one year where you will be offered other opportunities to have your wares for sale all year in the gift shop. 

    All artisan sales related to the York Art Association will be split 70 percent to the artist and 30 percent to the organization. Proceeds benefit outreach, free arts programs and scholarships for all.

    DROP OFF OR SET UP YOUR  WARES on Sunday and Monday, December  8 and 9
