The renowned Cape Byron Steiner School Spring Fair is an absolutely wonderful day out for all the family. This unmissable event is taking place this coming Saturday, 16 September and the school is inviting the local community to join in once again in celebrating the start of spring.
Saturday’s festivities will take place between 10am and 3pm with highlights including live music (you’ll probably spy a few famous faces among the musicians), a vintage clothing stall, a Ninja Warrior course, a soccer shootout competition, a variety of wonderful teen craft activities (like tote bag painting) a retro photo booth, Steiner-inspired gifts and crafts, an unbelievably generous raffle, a huge array of international cuisine and delicious cakes, chai and desserts served all day long for unbeatable prices.
For the little ones there is a crystal dig, the famous puppet show, clay workshops and silk painting. And for your belly, you’ll find a culinary adventure on ‘Eat Street’. Take your pick of Indian curries, jackfruit tacos, Mexican plates, falafel bowls or juicy gourmet burgers and smokin’ hot BBQ. Then head up to ‘The Cafe On The Green’ for dessert and choose from an extraordinary selection of cakes, slices, chocolate strawberries and gelato. And all the while, keep your cool with shaved ice, lemonade or fresh coconuts. Does it get much better?
Every year there is a special theme for the Spring Fair. This year the theme is Under One Sun – a collective prayer of unity, warmth, new beginnings and hope. It’s a new dawn on a new day in a new season with a fresh zephyr wind and the warm dew rising after the still, quiet winter. And we are here rising – blossoming, learning and growing – together … under one sun.
So come and join with the school community on Saturday – it’s going to be a beautiful day. You will of course also enjoy a wide variety of live music all day long – from class orchestras to our wonderful ‘Ensemble Della Mar’, bands and acoustic vocals. There’s even a songwriting competition (open to all local high school students) which is an opportunity for any high school student in the area to highlight their passion and skill for music.
You may join the school tour (at midday) to learn more about the beautiful school. And if you feel particularly inspired, there is even a student work exhibition – a display of the unique and meaningful way that students learn and express themselves.
Or if you prefer sitting peacefully, grab a cup of tea and take a break in the cosy knitting tent and contribute to the community initiative of knitting squares (to form a lovely blanket for a family in need) or just wander around aimlessly soaking up the music, laughter and springtime good vibes. There truly is something for everyone this Saturday. Come fill your hearts (and your bellies).
Does this sound like something you want to enjoy? Great! Put it in your diary ‘en toute hâte’. This Saturday, 16 September 10am-3pm.
Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School is a Steiner school located in the natural environment of Ewingsdale. You will find the school at 216 Balraith Lane but for your ease you are encouraged you to park at The Farm and catch the free shuttle bus (running 9.30am to 3.30pm). The school community can’t wait to see you on Saturday – please bring all your friends. This will be a fair to remember.
