For 66 years, San Geronimo Holly Fair has welcomed hundreds of guests from West Marin for this magical evening in early November. We offer turkey dinners, hand made jams and preserves, and old fashioned carnival games with prizes for kids. Holly Fair invites you to linger over dessert and chat with your neighbor. Book Nook and Night Before Christmas are delightful boutiques to shop for gifts.
Holly Fair, by the numbers:
— 500 turkey dinners, with home baked pies and desserts;
–900 jars of jam and preserves;
— 3,000 household items at bargain prices in White Elephant booth;
— 250 antiques, art, jewelry, and merchant certificates open for bids in Silent Auction;
— 100 volunteers who generously donate their time and skills.
Our church members and friends assist with set up and break down. Neighbors search their garages and closets to donate gently used treasures for auction and sale. Young people earn community service hours serving in the dining room and Book Nook. Preschool parents staff the game booths.
Community fellowship and generosity is the spirit of Holly Fair!
