What is Winter Fair?


Winter Fair admission is free and open to the public. One of our most unique events, Winter Fair has been a tradition for over 40 years that brings together all three campuses, extended friends, alumni, and the larger Bay Area community. It gives everyone an opportunity to experience the magic of Waldorf festival life.

Every December, the Grade School is transformed into a winter wonderland. Boughs of evergreen dotted with pine cones and sparkling snowflakes adorn the campus and delight the senses. Woven throughout Winter Fair are festive games, crafts, baked goods, lunch fare, musical performances, and magical characters. Merchants sell handmade wares, and small moments of joy wait to be discovered. Winter Fair is an experience for the whole family. We hope to see you there!

Preparing for the Fair

Stars are the way children (and adults) pay for activities at the fair.

We carefully select various makers to provide a holiday shopping experience. These artisans in the past have included purveyors of handmade jewelry, art, curated clothing, natural toys, handmade skincare and bath products, organic food, beeswax candles, and dolls. We also sell student-made crafts that supports the school, and we sell local honey as a fundraiser drive to support the Raphael House of San Francisco.
