2014 is the second year of this fundraising effort for Anacortes Schools Foundation. “Celebrate the Season” is actually a series of activities. It is a great opportunity to have a photo with Santa (in his sleigh), have a cup of hot chocolate, play some games and more. Begin a new family tradition and benefit our students at the same time!

Public Days feature photos with Santa, unique gift shopping, crafts, food and games.


The public is invited to join us at our holiday decorated space on Friday, Dec. 5; Sunday, Dec. 7; Saturday, Dec. 13 and Sunday, Dec. 14. We are open noon to 5pm. Tickets for public days are just $5 per person or $20 per family. Tickets available at the door.

Gingerbread expands this year to an all day affair!


On Saturday, December 13 we’ll be open all day for Gingerbread decorating.  Come watch our student and adult teams battle it out. Or help your child (grandchild) decorate their own mini-house. Come down for the fun!

The “Dream It” Dinner/Auction is the premier event of “Celebrate the Season”


On December 6, this fun evening is open to the whole community – business leaders, retired residents, parents, teachers … young and old. We’ll enjoy a delicious dinner catered by Gere-a-deli, drink, participate in a lively “raise the paddle auction” and dance in our seats or on our feet to the sounds of the season with a band. There will be games and some surprises for our guests. For just $40 per person, it will be a memorable evening. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance. Order online now a Brown Paper Tickets.
