One of Beaufort’s most popular fall events returns on October 7, 2023, from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. The Saint Peter’s Catholic Church Annual Fall Bazaar will once again provide friends and families with a delightful day of delectable food, mouthwatering libations, irresistible arts and crafts, enchanting auction items, and children’s games, activities, and petting zoo. Entrance to the bazaar is free and open to the public.
As in years past, the bazaar will feature scrumptious international foods from several countries. For those desiring more sugary treats, the ever-popular Sweet Shoppe will provide cakes, pies, cookies, and other satisfying delicacies.
Beer and wine will be available for purchase. Cold soft drinks and water, sponsored by Habersham Land Company, will also keep participants hydrated.
All that food will require exercise to burn it off. The purchase of a wrist band will allow children access to a large slide, bounce house, football toss, soccer game, Fishers-of-Men fishing booth, face painting, popcorn, and entrance to the popular Beaufort Barnyard and Petting Zoo (from 10 AM until 2 PM).
The Silent Auction will feature new items and services donated by local businesses and individuals. New this year is an online auction that will include items such as a chartered full day fishing trip, a vacation rental on Harbor Island, the popular gourmet dinner with the pastor, and paintings.
Returning for its second year is the bazaar Craft Fair. Local artists and crafts people will display a wide variety of beautiful and novel items that make early Christmas shopping a breeze.
For the gardening enthusiast, the bazaar will also feature a plant sale.
The Saint Peter’s Catholic Church Annual Bazaar is a fund-raiser for Lowcountry Outreach, a ministry of Saint Peter’s parish. Lowcountry Outreach and the parish Service Committee work together to break down access barriers and find ways for area non-profits to expand their reach. Housed in the former insurance services building adjacent to the Saint Peter’s campus, Lowcountry Outreach has partnered with Good Neighbor Medical Clinic to provide rides to people who otherwise would not be able to keep their medical appointments. Lowcountry Outreach is now providing office space for Lowcountry Legal Volunteers which helps provide access to justice regardless of a client’s ability to pay.
