What is the Alternative Christmas Fair? 

Hope's annual Alternative Christmas Fair has been held in November for over 20 years. The fair provides the opportunity for charities, non-profits, and service organizations to offer goods for sale with 100% of proceeds supporting the individuals they represent. Shoppers get the chance to learn about local, national, and international charities while buying one of a kind items.

In addition to items sold by vendors, Hope also has a "Sweet Street" -- homemade baked goods for sale. The sale of these baked goods cover incurred expenses with the net proceeds going to one or more organizations chosen by the Alternative Christmas Fair Committee. Make sure to stop by and purchase something -- some may be perfect for your Thanksgiving celebration or place in your freezer to enjoy later!

Admission to the Christmas Fair is only $1.00! 

Help us continue this tradition for our vendors who over the years have relied on the profits earned and assisted thousands upon thousands of well deserving recipients.
