Saturday December 8th

Our annual winter festival takes place in December with doors opening at 11am for holiday crafts, seasonal treats, shopping, and entertainment. The festival’s highlight is a variety of activities for children and their parents, puppet shows, stories, live music, an introduction to Kindergarten, and vendors offering a wide variety of unique quality gifts including handmade toys and dolls. Details of our Faire are below and will give you an idea of what you can expect.

Activities: Tickets for each activity will be on sale on the day of the event

Create Your Own Beeswax Candle
We invite you to dip your own candle using local, 100% beeswax. These make a lovely handmade addition to your holiday table or to give as gifts.

Sleeping Bear & Enchanted Forest: KG-Second Grade Children
Children will enter a dense, magical forest and come to the bear’s cave, where a sleeping bear, tasked with guarding the treasure, has fallen asleep. The children must try to sneak up and take a treasure from the treasure box. The bear will grumble, groan and toss about… and sometimes – if it’s an older child – awake and chase the child away. (For Kindergarten through Second Grade only.)

Story Room & Puppet Shows
This year, our story room is much bigger to accommodate more children at once – less waiting! Our story and puppet schedule will include 3 stories and 3 puppet shows.

Puppet Show: Masha and the Bear, a Russian Folk Tale
Presented at 11:30am, 1pm & 2:15pm
