What is WinterFaire?
The Siskiyou School’s Annual WinterFaire holiday event has been a tradition in the Rogue Valley for over 30 years! At this family-friendly, old-fashioned event, you and your children may dip your own beeswax candle, choose a treat in the Crystal Cookie Room, pick a treasure from the Pocket Person, visit the magical throne room of the Fairy Queen, and more! Many other enchantments, crafts, and activities, along with delicious food and more than 25 gift vendors, will be awaiting YOUR family!
