Deck the Halls, our annual holiday extravaganza, is an important fundraiser and celebration of the St. Andrew’s community and its partners. All proceeds from this popular event will be dedicated to our Outreach programs.
Shop for holiday gifts at our different booths, and enjoy live holiday music and a trivia contest. Andy’s Kitchen and Tea Shop will offer cider and other hot drinks, scones both sweet and savory, a selection of bar cookies, and sandwiches suitable for snacks or lunch. Prefer a hot meal? Grab some chili!
Kids of all ages can build an Advent wreath at a supervised station, and everyone can preorder a kit to build and decorate their own gingerbread house. Our online store, open through Nov. 25, offers multiple items that are only available through preorder, with pickup on the day of the event.

Presents Under the Tree
Handcrafted gifts—beautiful, useful, or even strange—are a wonderful way to celebrate community artists and give something unique to that special someone. Come see the work of our gifted makers, from quilts and other woven wonders to whimsically painted furniture and more. Our famous gift basket display will also be included in this year’s Presents Under the Tree!
Jewels and Jingles
Get ready for both holiday parties and everyday fabulousness with new or gently used earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, belts, scarves, and small handbags! You never know what you might find!
The Wine Pull
A past favorite returns for 2022: For each cork purchased, festival-goers choose one surprise bottle of wine, worth anywhere from $15 to $70. Whites, reds, and rosés await—you just might discover a new go-to varietal!
Mrs. Claus's Sweets and Treats
Savor the tastes of the season lovingly prepared by our home chefs and bakers. From banana bread to chess pie and sugar cookies to sourdough, you won’t want to go home empty-handed!
Make and Take an Advent Wreath
From 10 am to noon, kids can create an Advent wreath with fresh greens that should last all the way through Christmas. Reservations are not required, and it’s free! The crafting station will be supervised, so parents can stay and create or go shopping while their little artist does their best work! Donations for outreach will be accepted.
Make a donation to support our Outreach programs in honor of a special person or occasion and receive a lovely card with a printed message inside and a description on the back of the good work your gift supports, envelope included. This year’s card features artwork by our very own Thea DeLoreto. Preorder through our online store or find them at the event, while supplies last!
Use our online store to order these adorable and delicious specialty cookies. You can also pick them up at the event from Mrs. Claus’s Sweets and Treats, but a preorder is the only way to ensure you get your favorite design!
Try your luck and receive a surprise gift card or certificate worth more than you paid! From car washes to a night out on the town, there’s something for both you and everyone on your list.
