Our Share Faire brings all the benefits of sharing Stories, Skills, and Stuff together in one fun event. Come join us to share garden produce, arts and crafts supplies, books, toys, clothes, and household items. We’ll have things like music, bike repair, video storytelling, and other demos and classes as well, with different themes each time.

How it works: Come and sign in (so you’ll know how it went and be notified next time). Put what you brought on their respective tables and take what you need. Check out the demos, try something new, come meet us, and have fun!
- Please bring items in good enough condition to be useful to someone else.
- Please don’t bring anything too sentimental, since you may not know who’s getting it.
- Please take what you brought home (especially if it is very large or a lot of it remains at the end) and do not dump items or leave them unattended.
Do you have a skill to share? Can you teach or show it to others? We are always looking for new and interesting demos (especially those that can be shown in 30 minutes or less) of skills, cooking, and crafts.
