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.
