When and where is the Festival?

On Friday, October 14th, 2016, we will be we hosting our sixth annual fall festival. This year we will be holding our festival on Friday afternoon. Regular attendees will recall we focus on a theme each year to raise awareness about an important issue. This year’s theme is Soaring With Stories to highlight the role of stories in our lives. The festival site is at the New School Montessori Center. Due to attendance levels, parking is in an adjacent property. Check out the General Information page for more information and directions.

What is the Festival?

The festival is first and foremost a fun-filled social event for our families. One parent commented, “Wow, this is better than the State Fair!” By which he meant our Festival is more neighborly and community-oriented, and packed with events and activities for children while being in safe, friendly surroundings.

This event is an opportunity for families and our local community to show their support of the school. It also gives older children volunteer opportunities that offer useful experience. Additionally, the festival raises visibility for the school within our local community.

We also use the festival to raise awareness for an important cause or issue. This year, our students will learn about the importance of stories to spark our imaginations, inspire creativity and develop a lifelong love of reading and learning.

Features and Attractions

The festival attractions offer safe, fun and age-appropriate activities and entertainment including rides, bouncy house, demonstrations and a range of activities to promise a memorable event for families from toddlers to parents! Check out the General Information page for more information on the festival attractions.

Fall Festival Partners

Each year we partner with local business and organizations to promote a specific cause. We’re still working to secure an appropriate business or organization to feature as this year’s official Festival Partner. We will announce festival partners as information becomes available

Making this possible — We need your help!

Our festival’s popularity has grown dramatically over the past five years. The expanded news and advertising have provided our sponsors and vendors with exposure within our local community and beyond. The size and success of the event are made possible by the New School’s initial investment, so the festival simply cannot happen without your kind support.

The Fall Festival is made possible by parents, family, friends, volunteers and local businesses. We very much need your help to continue the Festival tradition for our school and the Holly Springs community. By becoming involved at any level, you will make a huge difference! We are very appreciative of any help you can give. Here’s how you can help:

Sponsors can choose to donate funds directly and receive significant benefits. Anyone who refers a sponsor will receive free festival entry and other benefits, depending on the levels of sponsorship. Please see the Sponsor & Vendor page for sponsor levels and how to sign up.
