Saturday December 7th from 11am to 3pm
Our annual winter festival takes place in December and is open to one and all. Doors open 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 that day
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.
Visit the Fairy Queen
Let your child become enchanted by a visit from our Fairy Queen. The Fairy Queen will share a short story and give a small gift that will warm your child’s heart.
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.)
Make a Sword, a Jump Rope and a Pomander
Choose one or all activities that will allow your child to create something special to take away.
