An American Holiday at The Butler is an annual arts and craft show. The Butler’s annual holiday show and sale will feature original, one of a kind creations from some of the area’s finest artists and artisans inside the museum – a historical architectural masterpiece! Holiday entertainment is scheduled throughout the event as well. Visitors can browse a variety of beautifully unique, hand-crafted pieces that will satisfy most everyone on their gift lists. From pottery, paintings and prints, glass and decor to jewelry, herbal products, yummy treats and more.


The Butler’s American Holiday Arts & Crafts Show and Sale serves as an annual fund-raiser, with proceeds supporting the museum’s year-round free admission, as well as its free public programs and art education outreach. Participating artists and artisan vendors donate some of their wonderful items for a chance auction to raise funds as well. Chance auction tickets can be purchased on admission both days of the show, and winning tickets are drawn just before the close of the event on Sunday afternoon. Winners need not be present to win. Winners will be notified by phone.


In addition to the wide variety of art and artisan vendors to browse and shop, the Butler Museum Store and the Fine Art Sales Gallery will be open for visitors during the event. Proceeds from Butler Museum Store sales help fund The Butler’s free programming as well.
