This unique, utopian village was founded by architects and poets, and to this day, retains an artsy charm that’s hard to find elsewhere.

Arden is the most unique village in Delaware, and if you've never visited, it's worth learning a little more about the town.
Arden is an old fashioned utopian town, and the community is supported by "gilds." The Gilds in Arden include the Concert Gild, Dinner Gild, Library Gild, Shakespeare Gild and more. Every day they come together to put on an old fashioned village fair that is sure to delight you.
Thousands of Delawareans flock to Arden on the first Saturday in September to celebrate the village.
This year, the Arden Fair is held on September 1, 2018. This is the 111th rendition of this quirky New Castle County event.
Dozens of vendors come to show off and sell their homemade wares, jewerly, and handcrafted goods.
Prepare yourself for a wonderful shopping spree! There are so many artisans who attend that it will be hard to narrow down your selections.
The entertainment at the Arden Fair is top notch.
Families will love the live theater, street entertainers, and face painters that find themselves sharing their skills with all of Arden.
A highlight of the Arden Fair is the musical performances in Shady Grove.
Every year, local bands come to play for the fair, drumming up plenty of local support and ensuring that everyone has a great time.
Be sure to get there early. You'll want to spend the day shopping and the evening relaxing.
Bring a chair or beach towel to lay down when it comes time to relax and enjoy the music.
