Festival Planning & Volunteering

Festivals are an integral part of life here at Hawthorne Valley. The school hosts two festivals annually: the Spring Fair & May Day celebration, and the Yuletide Fair in early December. To learn more about these festivals, please visit the links. This page is dedicated to information for parents about organizing and volunteering for these two important school-based events.

Information on this page will be updated as volunteer opportunities arise. You may also fill out our Parent/Caregiver Involvement Form at anytime with your availability and interests. Many thanks!


Yuletide Fair

The Yuletide Fair is the school’s largest festival and takes place each winter, this year it will be held on Saturday, December 7th, 2019. The fair engages everyone in the community – kids, teachers, parents, extended family members & friends!  It is a magical event and one of the greatest opportunities to express our individual talents and to experience the strength and unique beauty of our community. The fair also contributes significantly to the school’s fundraising efforts. Much preparation, planning, and crafting go into making the fair an outstanding event for everyone!
