St. Christopher's Christmas Caravan Arts & Craft Show Application
For 61 years, on the first Friday of December, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church has sponsored the very successful Christmas Caravan. The Caravan has consisted of a Tour of Homes, a Bazaar, a Bake Sale and a Silent Auction. In recent years, these events have raised between $25,000 and $32,000 to the benefit of many local charities in support of hundreds of needy people in our community.
This year, the Bake Sale and Bazaar will be combined to become the “Bake Shop and Country Market.” The Silent Auction will be replaced with an Arts and Crafts Show and the Caravan will be both on Friday and Saturday. The Tour and Luncheon will continue to be on Friday only. St. Christopher’s has a beautiful campus with the ability to accommodate a large number of exhibitors outside and inside the building. This year’s Caravan Arts and Crafts show will be on Friday and Saturday, December 1st and 2nd.
We invite you to apply to be a Charter Participant in the 1st annual St. Christopher’s Arts and Crafts Show. St. Christopher’s ECW is committed to making this show a great success in its first year and our Publicity Committee is already working to make sure the Pensacola community is aware and excited about this dynamic addition to our Christmas Caravan tradition. Our convenient East Hill location on high traffic 12th Avenue will allow for banners and other signage for a full month prior to the event. Our Publicity Committee has budgeted an extensive campaign using Social Media,TV, Radio and Printed Media to maximize public awareness of and interest in our event.
A general information sheet and an application form are included for your review and use. If you have any questions, please contact Pat Fogg, Caravan Chairman, at 850 479-9962(H) or 850 384-4800(C).
