Each year St. Matthew’s celebrates the many talents of parishioners at our holiday craft fair known as the Festival of the Society Tree (FeST). FeST 2021 will be on Saturday, December 11.
This event is named in honor of the efforts of the Ladies Sewing Society who in 1867 used what was then a novelty, the Christmas tree, as a way to sell their wonderful handiwork. The Society raised the funds for much of the architectural additions and furnishings that still grace our historic church building.
All proceeds from FeST go to help people in need in Orange County through donations to local non-profit organizations.
FeST ordering begins on Monday, November 8th Wreath/Garland ordering will end Wednesday, December 1st Specialty Baked Goods and Surprise Box ordering will end Saturday, December 4th
ALL FeST orders will be available for drive thru pickup ONLY on Saturday, December 11th from 12:00PM – 2:00PM in the St. Matthew’s Parking Lot by the Orange County Board of Education.
