2020 Christmas Caravan Arts & Crafts Show
Dear Artist and/or Crafter,
For 64 years, on the first Friday of December, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church have 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, we have added a two day Arts and Crafts Show and raffle and replaced the Bazaar with a Country Market. The Tour of Homes will be Friday only. Last year's event raised around $30,000 to the benefit of many local charities in support of hundreds of needy people in our community. St. Christopher’s has a beautiful campus with the ability to accommodate a large number of exhibitors outside and inside the building. The 2020 Caravan Arts and Crafts show will be on Friday and Saturday, December 11th and 12th, 2020.
We invite you to apply to be a participant in the annual St. Christopher’s Arts and Crafts Show. St. Christopher’s ECW is committed to making this show a great success and our Publicity Committee is already working to make sure the Pensacola community is aware and excited about this year’s 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). Pat’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a juried show and you will be notified promptly of your acceptance for this year’s show. If you participated in our previous shows, you will not be required to send photos.
