Winter Faire 2024

Stay tuned for details in December

This “friendraiser” event invites the Anchorage community to celebrates the joys of winter at Winterberry.

For many, it’s the first time they step foot into our school and the fun factor is high. Classes and WPG coordinate jump rope making, live music, puppet plays, games, craft corners, silk dyeing, story telling, journal making. Entire classrooms are decorated to reveal magical fairy realms and gnome homes. A classroom cafe serves food and drinks to fortify friends for a full day of festivities. Volunteers sell baked treats and tickets, manage coat check, game rooms and traffic flow.

It’s an “all hands on deck” event that warms the wintry soul.
