The 30th Holiday Bazaar, a “must go” event kicking off the holiday season, will be held on December 6 and 7, 2019, at St. John's Church, 78 Green Hill Road, Washington, CT. This two-day event features great gifts, great food and fun for both children and adults.

The Bazaar features a range of carefully selected gift ideas from exciting vendors alongside the St. John’s Larder, Marketplace, Greenhouse and Couture Closet. A silent auction will be held beginning Friday evening and finishes Saturday afternoon.  There are dinners, golf packages, spa experiences, a Nantucket vacation home and more.  Read more about our silent auction items.

Amongst the mix of antiques, “new to you” furniture and collectibles, and designer clothing, there will be the “Made by St. John’s” potted spring bulbs, decorated holiday greenery, locally made treats, jams and chutneys and much more. After browsing the marketplace, you can relax with a light meal at the Bistro.

Don’t forget to get your photo taken with Santa!! Mr. & Mrs. Claus will be making an appearance Saturday afternoon at 3pm.

The Bazaar supports the mission and operations of the Church, especially its commitment to provide financial assistance to its neighbors in urgent need of food, fuel, medicine etc. This year St. John's has chosen to support the Washington Ambulance Association as our designated charity beneficiary.

~ 2018, Thank You ~

We share our heartfelt thanks for all those who planned, supported and contributed to the uplifting spirit of St. John’s Christmas Bazaar – 2018.

It was a resounding success…attended by well over 100 people at the Friday night preview party and streams of people who shopped the marketplace and tag sale on Saturday and Sunday.  A very special thank you to all the volunteers and vendors who carried out the spirit of hard work that it takes to put on such a wonderful event.

We are especially grateful for the generosity of all the merchants, parishioners and friends of the Church who donated all the items for the silent auction, the mystery tree, and the marketplace and tag sale shopping.  Thank you.
