Authors and Artists Gift Sale


After much deliberation and evaluation, the Authors & Artists Holiday Gift Sale Committee has made the decision to cancel the November 7, 2020 event. The uncertainty of the evolving public health crisis, and evaluation of timeframes for the restoration of large gatherings and public events, has led us to cancel the 2020 event and focus on the comeback event to be held on November 6, 2021.

We will keep contact information from the 2019 vendors who made the event a huge success, and also look forward to including new talent for our 2021 event. We will continue updating our Facebook page and will post your upcoming events throughout the year. Be sure to alert us to postings and events that we can pass along to others.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and wish a happy, successful, and safe year for everyone.

Chair, Authors & Artists Holiday Gift Sale

In 2021, this event will continue to showcase the work of a group of local authors and artists who will gather in the Armory on Main Street to exhibit and sell their work. With over 40 anticipated vendors, this group is a great representation of all of the talent that is right outside our door.  The event boasts free admission to the public and features holiday entertainment. 

It’s fantastic for holiday shoppers looking for unique locally crafted gifts or those looking for books and locally made items for themselves! Items for sale will include, for example, paintings, prints, ornaments, woodworking, pottery, jewelry and signed copies of books by local authors representing history, science fiction, children’s books, young adult, fantasy, romance, memoirs and more.

This event was sponsored in 2019 by the Town of Bel Air Cultural Arts Commission and the Harford County Cultural Arts Board through the Maryland State Arts Council.


Event Registration for vendors will begin in late May 2021. See our website below and follow us on Facebook to keep on the latest news.
