First Night at Devon is the kick-off event for the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair held the evening before the official opening day of the show. Featuring an open bar and gourmet fare, this festive evening draws an intimate gathering of 200 guests complete with the company of exhibiting artists and like-minded friends of art, horsemanship, and philanthropy.

Guests attending First Night at Devon are among the first to preview and purchase original works of art from regionally and nationally recognized artists. For 2019, we proudly welcome several new artists in the juried show in addition to many popular returning artists. Guests have the exclusive opportunity to meet many of the artists and stroll the horse show grounds without the big crowds.

All proceeds from First Night at Devon benefit the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Sales from the Gallery throughout the show are used to support the important work of Bryn Mawr Hospital.

Supporter opportunities for First Night and the Gallery are available; levels and benefits are listed below. If you are interested in supporting First Night, please contact us at info@artgallerydevon.org for more information.
