Holiday Share Faire coming to Cubberley Sunday December 14!

We were saddened by the closure of Common Ground, a place where we once shared stories and goods and ducked inside to say hi or buy a little something. Alas, no more, but we have a temporary home for our sharing expos – along with a new name.

The Holiday Share Faire will be at Cubberley Community Center this year, in room H6, on the side of the Charleston Shopping Center (Piazza’s) and in the back near the Friends of the Palo Alto Library booksale, right next door to the Cubberley Artists’ Open Studios. It will be a busy afternoon, starting at 1pm.

Food and beverages will be outside, along with fun demos like solar ovens and music. Massage, yoga, garden tips, succulents, wreath-making, kids’ area, storytime, and more are on the offering from local experts who will guide you through.

If you bring or need goods, stations will hold books, clothes, crafts, garden produce, toys, and holiday decorations as well. The whole family is welcome, and we recommend taking public transportation (bus 32, 35, 88, 104) or biking to this accessible place. Rain will not cancel the indoor and covered portions.
