Fall Fair Preparations Begin

The  annual Fall Fair and Open House is on Saturday, November 5th, from 10 am to 2 pm. Please note that there will not be an Artisan Marketplace in our Community Hall this year since the Community Hall will be under construction.

What is the Fall Fair?
Many parents in our school were first introduced to the school and to Waldorf Education by attending our famous Fall Fair. For the past thirty years, this Fair has brought together our greater community for a celebration of the season, with fine crafts, music, food, puppetry, outdoor games and unique entertainment for the whole family. This is the day we also host an Admissions Open House, which is a wonderful way for the parents in the community to see our community in action, peek into the classrooms, and talk with faculty and staff. This year, the Fall Fair is on Saturday, November 5th. This is a mandatory school day for all students – it is also one that everyone looks forward to!

In the Development Office we strive to meet the school’s fundraising goals while maintaining realistic expectations of our parent’s time and energy. By sharing the Fair responsibilities across the whole school, and coordinating the efforts through the Class Coordinators as well as the committee chairs, we hope that our volunteers will find their efforts deeply enriching and rewarding. Everyone takes up a piece of the work, and it all comes together! Because of the camaraderie generated when parents work together, the excitement from the students, and admiration from the visiting families for our community, we encourage everyone to volunteer and get involved with the fair.

Mark your calendars – and tell your friends from outside the school – because this Fair has Free Admission and something for all ages. Maine Coast Waldorf parents – please remember that the Fall Fair is considered a school day and an important part of your child’s and the whole family’s experience.
