‘Tis the season of love. “It’s Christmas Time” is the 2011 theme for the annual Christmas Festival Dinner and Concert on Friday, December 2, followed by the Christmas Festival Market of vendors, food, Santa and entertainment from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 3.

Volunteers are welcomed! Show off your Christmas dining with a service for eight table settings and centerpiece. We are looking for individuals, groups, or clubs that would design a table for the dinner. This means furnishing a six to eight table place setting and centerpiece for the table. Join the fun, friendly competition of volunteering to do a complete table. The setting includes dinner plate, salad plate, water glass, utensils and napkin. Centerpieces are not to exceed 10 inches in height.

This year’s décor will be clocks and whimsical mice. If you are willing to participate for the first time or have helped it in the past and would like to help again this year, please call FayLynn Baron at 643-7417 or e-mail flb@fredonia.net.

Market vendors come book your booth. We have a few left. Crafts, toys, Christmas gift ideas all welcome. Sorry, we are not accepting any more jewelry or hair bows, as we have reached our limit on these two items.

Friday night’s dinner choices are prime rib or vegan-grilled portobello mushroom with artichoke ragu and roasted potatoes for $35 per person. A great idea for a special Christmas outing for your employees, group or family is to book a full table. Contact us for reservations.

Dinner and concert tickets are available at Zion Pharmacy or call (435) 644-8276.

A concert performance, led by Symphony of the Canyons Music Director Kortney Stirland, immediately follows the dinner. Join us for this once a year festival as we collectively support the annual fundraiser for Symphony of the Canyons. Contact us at (435) 644-8276.
