Glen Ellen Village Fair Oct. 9

There’s nothing like the Glen Ellen Village Fair, so mark your calendar for Sunday, Oct. 9.

The fair features a hometown parade, booths with food and arts and crafts, music, kids’ games – all on Arnold Drive in beautiful downtown Glen Ellen.

Festivities start at noon sharp and go to 5 p.m. This year’s theme is “Historic Glen Ellen,” which is reflected in this year’s quilt which will be raffled off that day. A number of locals – Margie Foster, Kathleen Gray, Sylvia Crawford, Marge Everidge and Archie Horton, Cheryl Franzini, Leslie Smith, Mary Ann Carr, Nancy Murray, Katie Dunham, Blythe Carver, Deb Pool, Jayne Carpenter and Pam Wiley – each have made a quilt square interpreting an historic Glen Ellen spot. Melanie Zachau assembled the quilt.

You can buy raffle tickets to win the quilt on Sept. 17 and Oct. 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside of the Glen Ellen Village Market. Quilt tickets are $2 for one ticket, $5 for three, $10 for seven, and $20 for 15. Proceeds from the raffle go to the Fair, Dunbar School, Glen Ellen Fire Department, and other charities in Glen Ellen.

It’s not too late to volunteer to help put on the Glen Ellen Village Fair, or be in the parade, or to have a booth.
