Carysfort National School, Arklow, are once again looking forward to hosting their annual fair on Saturday December 2nd, from the earlier opening time of 10am and finishing at 4pm.
This annual event has grown in strength and popularity each year and this year it promises over 60+ local stall holders selling a range of wonderful crafts and stocking fillers for Christmas. It is greatly supported by the local community and looks forward to increased attendance this year.
The Carysfort Christmas Craft Fair is unique in that it promotes local cottage industry from crafts including, embroidery, crochet, artisan food, seasonal giftware, toys, home décor, jewellery, cakes, beauty products and many more exciting giftware ideas to suit every pocket.
Many unique gifts will be available from Fairy Doors, outdoor wooden reindeers, candles, bespoke jewellery and much more all made by local people.
As well as all of the shopping opportunities, there will be a coffee shop with a selection of sandwiches and home baked treats for all the family. The Grain Store from Aughrim will serve hot foods. We will also be selling waffles and candy floss.
Santa Claus will be arriving at his grotto in Carysfort at 12pm. Our younger visitors can also avail of the fabulous face painting as they wait.
If this doesn’t get you in the festive spirits, there will be carol singing by Carysfort children to lift the spirits of even the biggest Scrooge.
This is a great opportunity for people to see first-hand the fabulous local produce available in the Arklow area. It really is a one stop shop for unique Christmas presents, ambience and even the chance to purchase Christmas trees and wreaths.
