2022 GALA

Our Auction is now LIVE

We are excited to share that our auction is mobile!

We will be using Handbid, a mobile silent auction platform that allows you to bid from your smartphone–so whether or not you’re joining us in-person, you can still participate in our auction fundraiser!

Save time at check-in by getting setup and start bidding before you arrive!


If you have an iPhone or Android, you can download the Handbid app from the Apple iTunes App Store or the Google Play store

Please note we strongly recommend you “accept notifications from this app” when you open it and join an auction. This will allow you to get push notifications for “Outbid” messages during the event.


Next, create an account. From the app home screen, tap on “GET STARTED” button and complete the information (please use your cell phone number – this is important as this is the number your notifications will be sent to). Tap NEXT and Handbid will text you a 5 digit code. Enter this code to login. 

Once you are logged in, select Waterfall Arts 2022 from the list of auctions and START BIDDING!


Whether you are bidding online or in the Handbid app, here are some easy tips to help:

  • MAX BID:  This is the maximum amount you are willing to spend for an item and the Handbid system will automatically bid for you until you reach your max. Set a max bid and enjoy your evening!
  • NOTIFICATIONS: If you have downloaded the Handbid app and accepted push notifications, you will be notified when you are outbid on an item. If you don’t accept push notifications, you will receive text messages from Handbid.
  • DASHBOARD: Monitor what you are currently winning and losing on the dashboard screen in your app or online. 


If you would like to be placed on the waiting list should additional tickets become available, please call Liz at 207.338.2222

Thank you for supporting our big fundraiser event! We look forward to having you.

Waterfall Arts COVID-19 Update

Until further notice, Waterfall Arts requires that all guests and artists registering for our classes and workshops are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or present a negative COVID-19 test (within 24-hours before class). A digital or physical copy of your vaccine card or test result can be presented at the door at the time of the class or emailed directly to our programming director amy@waterfallarts.org prior to class start.

Masks are encouraged when social distancing is not possible. 

** For youth programs, we ask for proof of vaccination (or negative COVID-19 test) of the household adults. If your child is vaccinated, you may submit the child’s COVID-19 vaccination information, instead.**
