Fun at the Glen Ellen Village Fair





Don’t miss the upcoming, beloved, one-of-a-kind tradition that is the Glen Ellen Village Fair. Now in its 24th year, the fair is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 12, noon to 5 p.m. on Arnold Drive between London Ranch Road and Warm Springs Road.

The fair begins with the parade down Gibson and Arnold Drive to the Jack London Lodge. This year’s theme is “The Flowers of Wild Glen Ellen” and it’s the perfect opportunity for hometown regulars to show their crazy and creative sides. This year’s Grand Marshal is Anne Teller, long-time Glenellenite, and owner of Oak Hill Farm. If you’d like to be in the parade, please contact Dawn Kemp at MollyPichr@aol.com or 933-9422.

The musical guest list includes The Solcats, Flashback, The Cork Pullers, and The Jami Jamison Band. More than 85 vendors will be on hand selling unique items, prepared foods, clothing, dessert, drinks, and much more. As always, beer and wine tasting will be brought to you by the Glen Ellen Fire Association Auxiliary.

For carnival-style fun, there’s “Kids’ Alley,” designed for ages four to 10. Any young adults, middle school to 25 years old, who would like to volunteer on a two-hour shift in Kids’ Alley should contact Shannon Lee at shannonlee@me.com or 996-3352.

The annual quilt raffle is going on now, and the winner will be drawn at the close of the fair (no need to be present to win). Find this year’s beautiful “Flowers of Wild Glen Ellen” quilt outside the Glen Ellen Village Market on Oct. 4, or at the fair itself, where tickets will be on sale individually for $2 or in bunches of three for $5, seven for $10, or 15 for $20. Proceeds of past raffle ticket sales have benefited Glen Ellen and Mayacamas Fire Departments, Dunbar School, and other local charities.

Don’t forget that Arnold Drive will be closed between London Ranch Road and Warm Springs Road for most of the day. To follow along join us on Facebook at Glen Ellen Village Fair. Questions? Email glenellenfair@att.net.
