It is with much anticipation that our popular Fine Arts & Crafts Fair is returning to All Saints’ Episcopal Church, between Dolores and Lincoln at 9th. Saturday, November 18th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Admission is free. The Fair is being held in conjunction with the Homecrafters Marketplace at Sunset Center, San Carlos between 8th and 9th Ave., and the Holiday Faire at Wayfarer Church, Lincoln & 7th. Avenue, offering you a “triple crown” of art fairs all within a few blocks of one another! All Saints’ artisans will be in Seccombe Hall and the lower patio. It is held rain or shine!

This year there will be a dual sponsorship between All Saints’ and our near neighbor, St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church, who shares our campus. The joint venture promises to increase the bountiful bake sale sweets and now will include everyone’s favorite, Greek pastries! Also new this year, chefs will be grilling on the lower patio, so there will be delicious hot lunches for purchase.
