Friday, April 22 at 6 PM
Live Auction begins at 3 PM on Sunday, April 24th.

We are delighted to return to the Lambertville First Presbyterian Church, 31 N. Union Street, for our first in-person auction in two years.

The posters will be on display in the church gymnasium beginning Friday, April 22 at 6 PM. Both Artists' and Kids' posters will be on display.

The Silent Auction will open Friday night and the live auction posters will be on display. At this time you can get a head start by registering for the live auction and leaving an absentee bid if you will not be able to come back Sunday for the live auction.

Artists’ prizes will be awarded at 8 PM. The posters will be on display, Saturday, April 23 from 11 am -5:30 pm and Sunday, April 24 from 11 am – 2 pm. At 2 pm on Sunday, the Silent Auction will close. The Live Auction will begin at 3 PM on Sunday, April 24th.

All posters sold are original works of art generously donated by local artists to fund the next generation of artists in the Delaware River Valley. Each year we all work together to raise enough money to award The Jim Hamilton Memorial Shad Festival Scholarship. The scholarship consists of two $10,000 scholarships to two high school seniors going on to pursue a degree in the fine, performing, or culinary arts. Jim Hamilton was a co-founder of the Shad Festival and a community activist who worked tirelessly to make Lambertville a better place.

This scholarship has been given significant financial support from the Friends of Ely Park, a non-profit founded by Mr. Hamilton for the purpose of revitalizing Lambertville’s only dedicated green space and to make it safer, more welcoming and user-friendly.
