THANK YOU for supporting our past Festivals, and please save the date for our 2018 celebration -- details to come as the date approaches!
Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018 10:30 am - 4 pm
Over the past several years, our ER Christmas Festival has become a favorite annual event for our community. This year's Festival will be at two main locations: the Eyer Building (at Main and West Commercial) and the ER School campus (specifically, the 6-12 cafeteria). The Christmas Festival is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, with extensive assistance from the Town/Village of ER, the ER Alumni Foundation, the ER Association of Churches, the ER Rotary, and the ER School District. Our Festival provides visitors with activities such as music and caroling, children’s stories, food and item vendors, games and crafts for all ages, free transportation between the two sites and free horse-drawn wagon rides around Edmund Lyon Park, and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
two-page 2018 schedule, map, and more coming in November!
Supporting our local non-profit organizations: This year we will again provide our non-profit organizations with the opportunity to host fundraising booths along West Commercial Street, near the Eyer Building's public parking lot. Please come support them!
'Holiday Trail' 2018 raffles for ERHS scholarship fund: We're very proud and excited to again sponsor a 'Holiday Trail' series of raffles! Local businesses will be contributing prizes worth at least $100, and tickets ($1, or 12 for $10) will be for sale starting Monday, Nov. 5. They'll also be available at the ERCF and by contacting email@example.com. (The list of the participants and prizes will be provided when purchasing tickets, and will be available below starting Nov. 5.) Similar to a "Chinese auction," raffle participants will visit the businesses to enter their ticket(s) for the prize(s) of their choice. Tickets must be purchased by Friday, Dec. 14 and submitted by the end of the business day Sunday, Dec. 16; drawings will be held the week of Monday, Dec. 17. Best of all.... the proceeds go to the Chamber's scholarship for an ERHS senior!
