A Mill Valley Tradition: Greenwood School’s 15th Annual Winter Faire

On Saturday, December 1st from 10 am – 4 pm Greenwood School will hold its 15th annual Winter Faire in downtown Mill Valley that promises to delight, surprise and enchant attendees of all ages.

The Winter Faire

Welcome to a wonder-filled event with a marketplace full of handmade and hand crafted items from local artisans, fun activities for children young and old, a bake sale, an organic café, daylong entertainment and more. Mill Valley parent Lauren Silver says, “Before the Halloween costumes are put away, my daughters start to count down the days until the Winter Faire.

Kid Imagination is the secret ingredient.

At the Winter Faire, children can decorate organic cookies in Granny’s Kitchen, receive a crystal from the queen in the sparkling Crystal Cave, walk the Knight’s Course, go fishing for prizes in the Frozen Pond, decorate a log candle-holder in the Enchanted Forest and visit, but not wake up, the Hibernating Bear. Weeks before the event, parents and local vendors work long into the night hand-making crafts and treasures big and small.

Music, Food & More…

There will be carolers throughout the day, and performances by the Greenwood School Orchestra and the Greenwood Choir. Greenwood’s Organic Café will serve an enticing menu, catered by 4505 Meats in San Francisco.

Holiday Shopping

Local artisans come from across the Bay Area to share their wares and it is the only place where gifts made by the parents of Greenwood and notable stores are available side-by-side.
