The Annual Fall Fair at Burgundy Farm Country Day School
It's back to school, back to books, back to farm, friends and ... the Fair! The Fall Fair is a fun, festive way to celebrate our community while also raising money for student financial aid. One of Burgundy's longest-standing traditions, the Fall Fair attracts hundreds of visitors each year and depends on support from current families, alumni families, alumni and special friends.
The 2017 Fall Fair is scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Fall Fair is coordinated through Burgundy's Advancement Office. Allison Niedbala can help with any questions. There are lots of ways to get involved:
We ask each of our current parents to donate at least one hour of time at the Fall Fair to ensure it is fun and successful for everyone. Each class is assigned an area to manage, and you will receive an email from your class Fall Fair representative in late September with information about how to sign up. We also ask our Middle School students to volunteer.
We welcome donations for the following items, and we are happy to provide a receipt for tax deductions. Details about dropping off donations.
- Kid's Closet: Gently used kids' clothes and toys. We cannot accept electronics, car seats, helmets, pajamas, bathing suits or underwear.
- Used Book Sale : Used books and media (including DVDs) for adult or child readers.
- Bake Sale: We sell individually packaged nut-free cookies, cupcakes, brownies and other goodies. We will handle pricing, and we encourage festive decorations!
- Other activities year to year may have specific donation needs.
Enjoy delicious food, live music, games and prizes, a zombie run, pumpkin painting, face painting, and more! Admission is free, but most activities require tickets, which can be purchased ahead of the Fair or at the event. The Food Tent, Bake Sale, Book Sale, Burgundy Mart, Artisan Mart and Kids' Closet are cash sales. Alumni, be sure to stop by the Library to reconnect with friends and faculty, and be part of the Alumni Photo at 1:00 p.m. (details to come).
