The Children’s Garden in Grant Park is hosting its first Holiday Faire and Artisan Market on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free. The event will be held at the school: 486 Park Ave. SE. Join us for this child-centered, eco-friendly, family event perfect for children ages 2 to 7.
The Holiday Faire is a special community event that offers a wide variety of holiday crafts and delightful games for young children, puppet show storytelling, delicious lunch options, "Bake Shop Café" full of sweet treats & beverages, live music and more. And especially for the children only, the "Wee Folk Shoppe": a magical place for them to do their own holiday shopping for family members and friends.
In addition to all the activities, the Artisan Market is where beautiful, handmade, original crafts and works of art can be purchased for gift giving (or keeping). The Holiday Faire is a staff and family-run, family-fun event for all and supports the school’s many endeavors.
