The Glenaeon Family Fair is a standout annual event on Sydney’s lower north shore, enjoyed by families and friends of the school, local residents, and visitors from far and wide.
Sat 4th Nov 2023 | 10am – 4pm | 121 Edinburgh Rd Castlecrag
Hosted by the school’s parent community, the Family Fair is our biggest annual fundraising event, and offers a magical weekend of good food, fabulous art and craft, wholesome family fun, and lively entertainment.
It is also a great opportunity to find out more about Steiner education, view students’ work, and talk to teachers about the difference a Glenaeon education makes.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The Glenaeon Family Fair offers a range of fun and creative activities for children of all ages, such as crystal mining, face painting, wooden toy making, tie dye, photo booth, craft, storytelling and much more.
Children can test their skills climbing Jacob’s ladder, throwing a ball in a bucket, or scaling the heights of the famous Lollipop Climb. And make sure not to miss the enchantment of the Grotto, especially for younger children.
The Glenaeon Family Fair has a reputation for delicious and healthy food options, with a range of food stalls run by parents, serving a variety of homemade and locally sourced items:
Lunch Cafe | BBQ | Sushi Stall | Chai Tent | Coffee Shop | Gelato Cart | Popcorn & Lemonade Stall
In keeping with our school values of sustainability, all food and drinks are served in reusable cups and biodegradable plates, and recycling is enabled via our waste separation program.
Keeping the vibe upbeat and family friendly all day long, our main stage will host a suite of live performers which will include talented students, parents and teachers.
From jazz bands, to drummers, instrumentalists, vocalists, fencing demonstrations and more – there will be something to suit every taste.
