Children’s Christmas Fair Community Invitation

Saturday, November 18 10:00-3:00 pm Children’s Christmas Fair
Dear Vancouver Waldorf School Community,
You are invited to immerse yourself in a wonderland of magical delights at our 47th annual Children’s Christmas Fair, hosted by the parents of the Vancouver Waldorf School, on Saturday, November 18.
Here you will find a wealth of creative activities and events for children, musical performances, delicious food and beverages, and our ever-popular Marketplace overflowing with a wide selection of quality handcrafted toys and gifts for children and adults. Be sure to take advantage of the adult-only Night Market on Friday, November 17, to peruse gift options without the gaze of your children.
The Fair also serves as our first Open House of the school year, and as such provides a festive opportunity to learn more about Waldorf education.
Our Children’s Christmas Fair is a time honoured tradition at the Vancouver Waldorf School and is a wonderful community celebration of the magic and beauty of the coming season. Please invite your friends and neighbours!
We hope to see you here!
Thank you one and all,
On behalf of the 2017 Christmas Fair Committee
Linda Baker, Laura Bergstrome, Walter Daroshin, Ashlea Earl, Andrea Frisque, Ronaye Ireland, Alison McCaig, Vlado Milanovic, & Ian Rapaport
The regularity with which the Sun moves through the seasons, the regularity manifested in the growth of plants and in the life of animals, this regularity was once chaos.
Harmony has been attained at the cost of great travail.
Humanity stands today within the same kind of chaos, but out of the chaos, there will arise a harmony modeled in the likeness of the harmony in the universe.
Peace to those who are of goodwill.
~ Rudolf Steiner, from Festivals and Their Meanings, Christmas 1923
