Bid on art, books, wine, birding equipment, outings, and vacation rentals.
The Silent Auction is a popular part of the Festival. In 2015, the more than 250 items up for auction netted nearly $25,000. Donations from businesses, members and supporters, as well as many artists featured in the Festival, round out the wonderful variety of auction items offered each year.
Would you like to donate to the Wild Arts Festival Auction?
Nature-related high quality art, framed photographs, pottery, jewelry, metal sculpture, wood carvings, wine, and items of interest to naturalists such as bird houses, bird feeders and binoculars are welcome. Gift Certificates to restaurants, book and outdoor stores, nature trips, guest house stays, and theater tickets are very popular. We request that all donations be in like-new condition for acceptance in the Silent Auction. Each item must be accompanied by a completed donation form. You can download this form here.
