Green Meadow Waldorf School’s annual Fall Fair will take place rain or shine on Saturday, October 11 from 10am-5pm. A tradition that’s nearly 50 years old, the fair is held on the school’s 11-acre campus, surrounded by beautiful fall foliage. The fair attracts more than 3,000 visitors. Parking and admission are free, and activity tickets are $1.
Candle dipping, tree climbing, a hayride, pumpkin carving, puppet shows, face painting, caramel apples, balloon darts, make-your-own-jumprope, and the cider press delight children. More than 40 unique, carefully selected vendors of one-of-a-kind handmade items (including pottery, raw and wild honey, sheepskins, wooden toys, clothing, jewelry, candles, and more) are a draw for adults.
In addition, a student exhibit showcases student artwork, a used-book sale supports our students, and community service tables introduce you to local social justice organizations.
New to the fair this year:
--NYC’s only all-female mariachi band, Flor de Toloache, will perform on the live music stage, as will other great local musicians. (Music runs from 11:30am-4pm.) Past performers have included Japanese Taiko drummers and Chiku Awali African dance troupe.
--The school hopes to add one or two popular food trucks to the food lineup, which consists of organic burgers and hot dogs, wild salmon, and veggie burgers on the grill, on offer alongside sushi (handmade by Japanese parents at the school) and many other healthy, organic options.
Green Meadow Waldorf School offers infant/toddler and family programs, serves children from Nursery through 12th grade, and offers popular summer adventures. Founded in 1950, the school is one of the oldest, largest Waldorf schools in the US, with about 390 students.
