May Faire

When: Saturday May 11th from 10am-noon

Where: Blue Oak Schol 450 W. East Ave

Half-way between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, we welcome the earth’s bountiful rebirth with our annual May Faire.

As the Green Man chases away King Winter to make way for Lady Spring and the King and Queen of the May, the children gather around the Maypole to dance. Faculty & older children provide live musical accompaniment while the younger children weave a rainbow of ribbons around the flower-adorned Maypole.

When the dancing has commenced, the community continues in celebration with food, games, family talent showcase, craft booths, and local vendors. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the coming of Spring while joyously deepening connections with our community.

Free family event, open to the larger local community.

Local vendors can email Summer to apply.
$60/booth (10′ x 10′ space) Spaces can be shared $40/booth for Blue Oak & alumni
