Explore dozens of booths in the Church School wing filled with handmade crafts, quilts, knitted items, baked goods, seasonal décor and gifts as well as plants and books. Pumpkins, mums, cheese, fudge, and much more :).
Browse and bid on silent auction items while listening to music or enjoying food from the outdoor Barbecue Grill, the Bakery and Coffee Shop or a quiet lunch at the White Steeple Inn with table service and pumpkin chiffon pie.
Children of all ages will love the face painting, clown balloon animals and games.
