On Saturday, November 17 from 10-3pm, the Washington Waldorf School will hold its 49th annual Fall Bazaar. Our halls will fill with the faces of friends, both familiar and new, who are drawn to the Bazaar’s wholesome activities, artisan goods, delectable food, and stunning seasonal décor evoking the spirit of our Waldorf school. For many of us, the Bazaar is a cherished tradition, a celebration of our community and our craftsmanship, and a beloved part of the rhythm of the school year. For others, this will be a new experience, full of discovery and wonder.
Get Involved with our Fall Bazaar
Sign Up Early for your Shift
Our Fall Bazaar is coming quickly - we can almost smell the cinnamon sticks and star anise of the beloved Candle Craft, almost see the scores of smiling children flocking to the Pocket Ladies and Wizards. But, we need your helping getting there. This is that special time of year when we ask each and every parent to sign up for a shift - staffing class activities at the Bazaar, cleaning up after the event, or setting up the day before. For those who choose to help set up on Friday, November 16, after the 12:30 (half day) dismissal, childcare will be available for the children of volunteers.
To sweeten this year’s call to duty, the Development Office is once again offering fantastic incentives: Sign up by midnight on October 26 to be eligible for a $50 gift certificate to the Bazaar’s Waldorf Store, and by midnight of November 2 to be eligible for a $30 one. Sign up starts today, so please click here! Ready…set…GO!
Bake for the Patisserie
Pull out the KitchenAid mixer and fire up your oven! Your contributions make the annual sale of baked goods at the Bazaar a delicious success. Offerings from students, parents and alumni are sold in two venues: the Snack Shop and the Patisserie.
You are invited to prepare your signature cakes, classic pastries, delicious cookies and other baked delicacies to sell on bazaar day. The magic number is 70 different baked items delivered by Friday, November 16.

Provide for our Neighbors
For the third year, at the Fall Bazaar, we are looking beyond our community to help the homeless in the District. Please bring a non-perishable holiday food (click here) for a list of suggested foods) to bring Thanksgiving to those in need. Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington will be collecting the food after the bazaar. Look for bins by the doorways of WWS.
