Holiday Fest


Holiday Festival is St. James’ Episcopal Church’s annual artisan and craft show. Held the first Saturday each November, Holiday Festival brings the best of the area’s artisans, crafters and gift sellers together in one place to help you kick off the holidays. There’s fall and holiday decor, gifts, gourmet food, and something for you, too! Our Tea Room offers breakfast and lunch. Shop, support, give.       



Admission is $1 and a non-perishable item for the Hereford Food Bank. Part of the proceeds of the day benefits the Hereford Food Bank. Other proceeds benefit the church.



Ads are available in our program. Use this form to place your ad.
