Celebrate the Season

Celebrate the Season in 2020 with ASF

Our team is working on a full online version of our popular annual holiday event. 

Watch here for information coming this fall for our event.

We raised $145,000 at our 2019 edition of Celebrate the Season.

That income supported funding STEM enrichment programs, Impact Summer Education, and visual and performing arts. In addition, we are funding backpacks and school supplies for our annual Ready to Learn Fair; college scholarships and pre-school scholarships.

The 2020 Impact Summer Education program was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Those funds may be re-allocated, based on new priorities of the school district. 

Family Holiday Fair

The 2020 Family Holiday Fair has been cancelled

In the past, we have opened the Port's Events Center for two days of family-oriented fun. The Family Holiday Fair, part of “Celebrate the Season,” has been free, thanks to the generosity of Derek Damon Orthodontics and Playhouse Dental, who have sponsored the two days.

Saturday (cancelled) – After the Anacortes Holiday Parade. Photos with Santa, Cookies and Cocoa provided by Chandler Square, Who-ville games and crafts provided by Fidalgo Rotary, Entertainment by Mt. Erie Elementary, Fidalgo Elementary, Island View Elementary Choirs and Fidalgo Danceworks.

Sunday (cancelled) – Santa, cookies, crafts plus entertainment by the Gracy Harmony Trio and the main event, is Gingerbread (small kits for all) and the contest put on by Fidalgo Island Rotary.

We are sorry not to be able to hold the Family Holiday Fair in 2020.

Ready to Learn Fair

Though the Ready to Learn Fair had to be transitioned to a drive through event due to COVID-19, we still distributed over 300 free backpacks and supplies at our event in August 2020. This year, ASF was fortunate and grateful to have many donors willing to fund Fair supplies for our K-12 Anacortes students, which means we have extra supplies for any ASD families that need them!
