Annual Holiday Marketplace
December 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Unitarian Memorial Church hosts its annual Holiday Marketplace as part of Fairhaven’s festive Old-Time Holiday. The event features local artisans, handmade crafts, raffles, baked goods (including nut-free and gluten-free), and a delicious luncheon with homemade soups and sandwiches.
Saint Nicholas will be entertaining all in front of our majestic Christmas tree. Each year, this tree is decorated by the church’s children, during a traditional offering of hot cocoa and cookies, with the help of church members and friends.
Guided tours will be in the sanctuary of this magnificent, gothic-style cathedral.
This year, visitors looking for a quiet moment during the festivities can receive a blessing or light a candle at the front of the sanctuary.
