Ready to Learn Fair


August 19, 2023

9am to 12pm

The annual Ready to Learn Fair helps kids start the year feeling proud. ASF and community partners provide back-to-school essentials including backpacks and supplies, books, gently used clothing, resources and information. A team of dedicated volunteers puts the fair on with the support of the Anacortes School District and funding from ASF.

We need your help

Anacortes families continue to suffer from the economic impact of COVID-19 and the need is much greater for the 2022-23 school year.

For just under $30 each, ASF provides students with a new backpack and an assortment of necessary, grade level appropriate school supplies. To meet this year's critical needs, over $18,000 and the support of many volunteers will be needed to make the 2022 Ready to Learn Fair a success. We invite you to support this important effort in any way you can.

Thank you, volunteers!

The annual Ready to Learn Fair has been an essential service for Anacortes students for over 20 years and it wouldn't be possible without our amazing volunteers!

2022 Ready to Learn Fair was made possible in part by our generous sponsors.
