Fundraisers

Special events are a fun way to raise needed funds for the Waldorf School of the Peninsula. These events provide parents the opportunity to socialize with other families, alumni and friends – while raising money for the school. Inviting your friends and family and volunteering your time, talent, and resources are all important ways you can get involved.

Holiday Faire

First Saturday in December
Los Altos Campus: 11311 Mora Drive

Waldorf School of the Peninsula holds an annual Holiday Faire from 10 am to 4 pm on the first Saturday of December each year.  The event is held at our Los Altos campus located at 11311 Mora Drive.

The Holiday Faire features activities for children and adults, is based on centuries-old traditions and is steeped in beauty and reverence for the winter season.

At the Faire, there are Children’s & Crafter’s Workshops offering crafts to make charming gifts suitable for most anyone on your list such as homemade jump ropes, decorative leather pouches, and tea candle lanterns. The day also features old-fashioned games of skill for younger children, such as Treasure Mountain, Leap of Faith, Troll Bridge, and Catapult Castle. Every game ends with a small treasure as a prize.

Returning each year is the Russian Tea Room where the serenity of the season can be enjoyed with quiet music, warm tea, and sweet treats. Also, the annual and popular fairy tale puppet show and storytelling are also performed several times during the day. In the popular tradition of the Gnome Adventure, children crawl through a passage lined with vignettes showing gnomes celebrating winter, spring, summer and fall. At the end of the journey, each child receives a small gem to remind them of the magical journey they enjoyed.

WSP’s celebrated Holiday Boutique at the Faire features over 10,000 handmade and unique items for sale, including European wooden toys, candles, knit scarves, elegant shawls, children’s books, parenting and craft books, yarn and knitting materials, natural arts and craft supplies, dolls and natural body care products.

Free on-site parking and shuttles to the Faire will be located at the Antiochian Church at 380 Magdalena.  Food trucks will be onsite with lunch for purchase from 11 am to 2 pm..

Our daughter’s Waldorf education has taught her how to think for herself and be responsible for her decisions, as well as empathetic and sensitive to the needs of others. She is exposed to a variety of different ideas, but never given one view of it. Waldorf has taught her to think for herself and truly enjoy the process of learning.
