Watch here for details.

On Dec. 1 is ASF’s annual “Dream It” fundraising dinner and auction. Then, Anacortes Schools Foundation volunteers turn the Port’s Event Center into a winter wonderland for two days of family-oriented fun on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 8 & 9. 

“Celebrate the Season” daytime events feature a marketplace for unique gifts by local crafters and non-profit organizations – many benefitting student groups.

This year, Fidalgo Island Rotary will bring in their “Whoville” decorations as well. There are activities for kids, teams, adults and families. On Saturday, families are invited to come in after the holiday parade and enjoy the entertainment we have lined up.

Funds generated by this event go towards programs supported by Anacortes Schools Foundation including STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Early Learning enrichment programs.

During the two open days of the event, guests will enjoy photos with Santa, make craft projects, warm-up with hot chocolate and cookies, and a holiday shopping marketplace offering unique gifts and food items. This year there will be no admission charge.

The signature event of “Celebrate the Season” is the “Dream It” dinner and auction. This year it will be held on Saturday evening Dec. 1 - also at the Port’s Event Center. This will be a lively evening featuring dinner catered by Gere-a-Deli, a live auction followed by the music.
