“The Holly Day Fair is an exciting event that kicks off the holiday season! It’s great to see returning shoppers and vendors year after year and meeting newcomers as well,” said SarahMarie Stewart, 2014 Holly Day Fair Chair. “This year we have expanded our publicity efforts by reaching markets, not only to those counties and cities that surround Fayetteville, but also to several neighboring states.

In addition to being a great event, the Holly Day Fair serves as the largest fundraiser for the Junior League of Fayetteville with all funds raised going directly back into our local community.

Last year was monetarily our most successful year, raising in excess of $300,000. This year, our 48th Holly Day Fair, we hope to surpass that amount. These funds make it possible for JLF to continue to promote volunteerism, develop the potential of women, and support programs and projects in our community that offer children services and opportunities that support their overall well-being. We live in a great community of amazing people who generously support one another, and we are pleased and proud to be a part of it.”
