Winter Faire Update Nov 16th

by admin on November 16, 2012

You are personally invited, as well as every relative you know, all your friends, and everyone you meet.  We are looking to dazzle, enchant, intrigue, and entreat you to enjoy our Waldorf traditional festival of Winter Faire held on our exquisite DMS campus.  We are honored to feature new thrilling events, fabulous entertainment, and create a mystical enjoyment of our handmade crafts and unique vendors to put ourselves on the map.  We welcome you to rise up as a community, come together, and get better acquainted as we raise funds for Desert Marigold School. If you would like to be featured as a vendor, entertainer, or volunteer, we are pleased to find a spot for you. I look forward to jousting, dipping a candle or sipping tea with you!  Be sure to tip the Blacksmith, and don’t get carried off by the medieval charmers!
