The June Faire annual Sierra Madre event celebrates “All Things British”

The 2013 June Faire will be held at the British Home in California, 647 Manzanita Avenue, Sierra Madre, on Saturday, June 1, from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm.
This festive, family-friendly event held annually at Sierra Madre’s premier non-profit independent and assisted living facility for seniors, offers British-style fun, food and entertainment for everyone from 5 to 105.
Colorful booths artfully situated on the beautiful 2 ½ acre campus will offer crafts, books, tools, collectibles, personal accessories, and decorative and household items for sale, the proceeds from which support the British Home.
Traditional British food, including ploughman’s lunches, English bangers, home-baked breads, pastries and savories, and a “proper” Victorian Tea Room will be available for your enjoyment throughout the day. Treat the kids to a hot dog, and a soda, topped off with a sno-cone or refreshing bowl of strawberries and ice cream.
The Children’s Area is among the Faire’s most popular features. The fun begins with a stop at the face-painting booth. Game booths, a bouncy house, sticky wall, water toss and bubble wand activities will provide hours of wholesome fun for the kids.
Live entertainment will include bagpipers and adults and youngsters performing traditional Morris, Scottish and Irish dances.
Have your picture taken with a strolling “British Bobby” or “Beefeater.” Coming attired—British style—in the garb of your favorite historical era is also encouraged.
The British Home is located in a residential area, with parking along Ramona and Manzanita Avenues, as well as on the side streets. For more information, please call (626) 355-7240 or visit our website:
