On November 19, the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm will be transformed into the Waldorf Enchanted Fair & Curiosities. This free event, which is happening from 9am to 4pm, offers a magical holiday experience for the whole family. There will be fifty-five local artisans selling unique gifts and toys, while children’s activities, live music, puppet shows, and food will be on offer throughout the campus.
With this annual fair, the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm has cultivated a reputation for bringing enchantment to children of all ages. Families can “Slay the Dragon” with bows and arrows; decorate cookies; watch a puppet show; make wands, capes, and hats; have their faces painted; get their picture taken in a dress-up photo booth; make a beeswax candle; and much more.
A fair favorite is the Wee Folk Shoppe. This tiny shop, just big enough for small children to enter, allows little ones to pick out a special gift and have it wrapped by a Wee Folk Elf. Another favorite tradition is the Pocket Lady and Pocket Gnome, who will be strolling through the halls with treasures hidden in their many pockets. Children delight in finding out what prize they have chosen.
There will be plenty of healthy food options, as well as delicious pizza from CopperDome Crust Mobile Pizzeria.The Waldorf Cafe & Bakery will be selling coffee and a large selection of homemade baked goods, including vegan and gluten-free treats. Musicians from the Essex-based Music Asylum will play outside while families eat lunch, peruse the raffle prizes, and visit with friends under the heated tent.
To enjoy an adult-only shopping experience, come to the school for “Enchanted Eve” on Friday night, November 18, from 7pm to 9pm. In addition to great shopping, there will also be hors d’oeuvres and live music.
