Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10 am to 4 pm

Join us for our 40th annual Yuletide Fair on Saturday, December 2, 2017, as we celebrate the holiday season!

The school assembly hall will be transformed into a winter wonderland with dozens of original gingerbread creations on display. Children and adults are invited to enter this year’s Gingerbread Contest, a perennial favorite of the fair. Friends, families, and neighbors will have an opportunity to bid on their favorite entries at the Gingerbread Auction – take home an original work of gingerbread art and support Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School!  Interested in participating? Stay tuned for contest directions, entry form, and early bidding sheet.

Enjoy activities for children, visit the Community Craft Room for handcrafted items and the Hand to Hand Room for gently worn wool clothing and wooden toys, and stop for a tasty treat in the Cozy Café.


Dozens of artisan vendors will fill the school’s classrooms with beautiful handcrafted items ~ you’re sure to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your holiday shopping list! If you would like to sign up to be a vendor, please use the forms below.
