Save the Date! Thursday, April 19th is “Rock the Block.” A combined event hosted by both the Delaware College of Art and Design and Delaware Historical Society. When the College and the Historical Society found out they had planned events in Wilmington on the same day and in similar locations, instead of competing, the solution was simple; to join forces! This way, people who want to attend both can do so, and both parties will have access to that many more people!

DCAD’s 20th-anniversary ArtParty on Market Street around 6th is on from 5:30–8:30 p.m. with music, food, brews and the 150-piece DCAD@20 ArtParty Exhibition. Partygoers can also get interactive with a community mural and sculpture and are encouraged to take selfies with famous artworks recreated by students on DCAD windows. Proceeds go toward scholarship opportunities for DCAD students and operating expenses.

Starting at 6 p.m., the Delaware Historical Society will hold the Delaware History Makers Award Ceremony at The Queen, followed by a celebration at the Delaware History Museum and Old Town Hall that will go until 10:30 p.m.

Dogfish Head cofounders Sam and Mariah Calagione are the award honorees. A variety of Dogfish Head beers and specialty food pairings will be served, and a “speakeasy” will feature Dogfish vodka, gin and rum cocktails. The evening will include live music, a buffet, photos from Delaware’s “Golden Age of Brewing” and the repeal of Prohibition in 1933. Proceeds support the Delaware Historical Society’s educational programs and exhibitions.

Tickets are $50 for the ArtParty and $95 for the Delaware History Makers Award event, but you can do both with a Rock the Block ticket for just $100.
