Remember the wonder of childhood? Find it again at this year’s Waldorf Fair. Children and adults alike will enjoy a variety of enchanting “unplugged” activities that make Waldorf unique including: jump-rope making, beeswax candle rolling, the fishing game, marionette shows, and live music. Additional activities include a Toddler Story time with Spring animals from Wildlife Adventures, photo booth, hair braiding, and an instrument petting zoo provided by Stages Music Arts, and multiple hands on natural crafts. The immersive Faerie Grotto, a family favorite, transports families to a magical realm where children meet the spring faerie, listen to an inspiring story of awakening spring, and receive a token to help on their journey.
The annual Waldorf Fair reflects the values and aesthetics of Waldorf education, which is based on a profound understanding of human development that addresses the needs of the growing child. In the artisan vendor marketplace patrons will find over 30 stalls selling the unique hand crafted wares of local Baltimore businesses and artists.
What’s more, the Waldorf Fair is a homecoming for alums and their parents who return to reminisce and reconnect with their PreK-8 experience – a testament to the lifelong connections made in the Waldorf community. More than your average Spring fair, the Waldorf Fair offers a window into a model of education that has been inspiring children across the world with the joy of lifelong learning since 1919.
