As the sun begins to warm the cool morning air, dew still sparkling on fresh evergreens, Haleakala Waldorf School’s 30th anniversary Holiday Faire will unfold Saturday, December 5, 9am-4pm. At 10 am, the overwhelmingly joyous sound of the Annual Elf Parade will add to the ambiance of laughter, smiles and aloha.
This is the place on Maui where you are sure to find the magical sights, scents and festive cheer of the holiday season! Located on a historic campus in Kula, Haleakala Waldorf School has offered this lovely event to Maui for the last 30 years, and it has matured into a fantastic holiday cornucopia. You and your family are invited to immerse yourself in a day of holiday spirit!
Carolers will stroll by as you shop amongst the best gifts from local artisans, Homemade Baked Goods, and Farmer’s Market. Enjoy live entertainment while you relax over an ‘ono lunch. Take a photo with Father Christmas or search for a surprise in one of Pocketman’s brightly colored pockets. Dip a beeswax candle or create a magical gnome garden at one of the many interactive “Make and Take” booths. Place a few bids at the Silent Auction where gallery art, vacation packages, activities and dining certificates are just a few of the fantastic finds available.
The day wouldn’t be complete without taking home one of the exquisite handmade Christmas wreaths. Fresh natural materials such as juniper, Christmas berry, lavender, evergreens and hydrangea are collected and prepared just days before the Faire. Wreath-makers then work around the clock to create these fresh, fragrant works of art. Be sure to choose one early, as they are sure to sell out!
Haleakala Waldorf School is located in upcountry Kula, across from the Kula Post Office.
