2014 Chicago Waldorf School Annual Holiday Fair
Saturday December 6th / 10:00am-4:00pm - 1300 W. Loyola Ave. (map/directions)
We invite Chicago community members, families, friends and neighbors to join us in celebrating our Holiday Fair with appreciation and togetherness. Waldorf Holiday Fairs worldwide are traditionally a day filled with hand-crafting projects, family-focused activities, childrens games, and opportunities to connect, shop, eat and enjoy. Our whole community focuses on the values of creative making, sharing and giving in the spirit of the season.
Waldorf students will play in duets and quartets throughout the fair at various locations to set a festive tone and share their musical gifts. Meanwhile in our auditorium you'll find a variety of school performers in the lineup including our student string musicians, vocal ensemble and African drumming group.
