The decades-old tradition of the St. David’s Bazaar brings the parish, day school, and community together once a year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to get ready for Christmas. Some parts of the bazaar are institutions–the Greens Sale, a visit from Santa Claus (thanks to the Day School!), and a Food Court that includes everything from oysters to one parishioner’s famous egg rolls. But we also keep current by changing what we sell and how we sell it. The Country Store offers foods and crafts (ranging from pepper jelly and homemade soups to pine cone turkeys and amaryllis bulbs). We look to vendors to bring high-quality shopping to patrons. And in any given year we might include a series of beautifully assembled raffle baskets, some geared just to kids and some offering experiences like a Ravens night, or we might add new offerings to the Country Store like flower arrangements to grace the Thanksgiving table. We love this opportunity to capitalize on the current skills and resources of our parish, and celebrate the coming of Christmas as one big church family!
