2017 Holiday Faire at Meadowbrook — November 17 & 18

Come and experience the Meadowbrook Waldorf School Holiday Faire. On the weekend before Thanksgiving, families are invited into a wonderland of activities, performances and plenty of holiday cheer. Meadowbrook’s Holiday Faire began as a fundraising market place, offering a wide range of high quality children’s items and unique gifts for all ages. It has since grown into a celebration of family that draws visitors from around the northeast region.

Friday evening is only for adults and offers an opportunity to shop out of sight of little eyes. Relax into the festive season and stroll a lantern path under the starry sky as you dip a candle. Enjoy live music from singer/ songwriter, Ray Jorgensen and a lively auction of items made by the students. Bring your friends and sample some warm Meadowbrook hospitality.

Saturday is a day full of activities that celebrate the joys of childhood. Bring your family and visit the magical Crystal Cave with its grottoes filled with gnomes and twinkling lights. In a quiet room, marionettes perform a traditional fairy tale. The school’s beautifully painted classrooms have tables of craft materials and volunteers to help you and your child create a treasure to take home. Refreshments are available and you are welcome to enjoy the forested campus as you picnic and explore.

Begin your festive season with Holiday Faire at Meadowbrook and start a new tradition for your family. Doors open Friday, November 17th, 7 – 10 p.m. and Saturday, November 18th, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Admission is free.
