Preparations Underway For The Manhasset SCA Fair

The Manhasset SCA Fair, the largest fundraising event of the year for the SCA. is set for Saturday, May 4 at the Munsey Park School and will be co-chaired by Daniela Buchholz and Dianne Tolentino.

The fair will offer many exciting attractions. Sample a selection of foods at the International Food Tent and visit the SCA Grill courtyard, the Old Fashioned Candy booth and the SCA Bakery booth. You can also shop the wide variety of wares offered by the vendors under the Big Tent, scale a rock climbing wall and have tons of fun enjoying face painting (new this year), the dunk tank and pie throwing.

The SCA Fair, in conjunction with Planet Manhasset, is committed to going green. Recycling bins will be located throughout the grounds, a continuation of a recycling program started in 2008.
