Lake Champlain Waldorf School’s annual two-day Holiday Fair will be held on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

The event combines activities for children, shopping for adults, and food. The fair begins Friday, 6:30-9 p.m., with its artisan market geared for adults and older teens featuring more than 50 vendors from Vermont and Quebec.

Market organizer Juliana Taylor promises an array of handmade creations from fiber craft items and candles, to cutting boards, pottery, art and many gifts for children such as Waldorf dolls and wooden toys. A full list of vendors is online at

The market continues on Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., along with activities for children. Kids will have opportunities to create handmade gifts including beeswax candle-dipping and felted soap-making. At 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., teachers will perform “The Red Sheep,” a seasonal play for children. Food selections will include a student-run bake sale and grill to support upcoming class trips. The Burlington-based Farmers & Foragers food truck, owned by school alumnus Sol Bayer-Pacht, will help provide lunch.

Admission is free, but there is a charge for some activities, and food is for purchase.
