Christmas in Suffield is a unique experience. No other community in our area features multiple Christmas fairs on the same day. This year five fairs will be held on November 2, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Second Baptist Church’s Fellowship Hall will be teeming with activity. They will be selling plants, Christmas decorations, stitchery and knitted items, costume jewelry and a bake sale which also features jams, jellies and preserves. There will be attic treasures upstairs in the activity room. A luncheon will be served from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. with macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, soup, clam chowder, apple crisp and coffee.
The Third Baptist Church will feature lovely Christmas arts and crafts from various vendors, a bake sale, a white elephant table, and pecans for your holiday baking.
Sacred Heart Women’s Guild will host its Annual Christmas Bazaar as part of Christmas in Suffield. Many different crafters will be featured, plus baked goods, and delicious chili from Suffield Pizza. These are provided for luncheon enjoyment at the Cafe or take out will be featured this year as well as our Treasures and Trinkets area. The alpacas will be back this year so that bazaar goers can see the source of the beautiful socks, scarves and sweaters on sale. All the crafters, as well as many local and area businesses and individuals, have donated gift items for the raffle.
The proceeds from the Christmas Bazaar have been dedicated to the Women’s Guild Scholarship Fund. In the Spring, eligible high school seniors will receive grants from the funds raised at this annual event. For more information please call Guild President, Elizabeth Grigoriou at 860-668-4246. The Bazaar is held in the parish hall, which is located at 446 Mountain Road (Route 168).
West Suffield Congregational Church will again have their SERRV International Bazaar featuring artisans from around the world, a bake sale and white elephant table. There will also be other vendor tables offering holiday gifts and a teacup auction. Take a moment to sit back and savor hot soup and fresh bread, and top it off with a piece of warm apple pie, sold by the slice, with a cup of steaming coffee.
There will be no bazaar at First Church due to renovations.
Stop in and enjoy part of your day with all the organizations.
