Winterthur offers a wide variety of exciting events and programs all through the year, both on-site and online. Visit our calendar page to explore our current offerings.

And don’t miss Winterthur’s signature events – Point-to-Point and the Delaware Antiques Show!

With the suspense of steeplechase racing and the festivity of tailgate picnicking, the Winterthur Point-to-Point races are an exciting day for race goers of all ages. Point-to-Point is Winterthur’s largest single-day fundraiser and takes place in May.

In early November, Winterthur’s Delaware Antiques Show brings together more than 60 of the nation’s top dealers and their finest offerings of furniture, paintings, rugs, ceramics, silver, jewelry, and more. The show is a benefit for educational programming at Winterthur.
