Orange County Great Park
The Irvine Fine Arts Center invites the community to its 38th annual Holiday Faire on Saturday, November 7, held this year entirely outdoors at the Orange County Great Park with advance tickets required, to better ensure a safe, socially distanced environment for the public.
This year’s event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Great Park’s Palm Court and features 50 local artists displaying and selling their unique handmade gifts for purchase including holiday decorations, hand-blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, folk crafts, clothing, and more. The Palm Court provides ample space for both vendors and attendees to help the community come together to shop for the holidays and support local artists in a safe, responsible manner.
New safety protocols in place during the Holiday Faire include: pre-registration to limit on-site attendance, facial coverings worn by all vendors and attendees, hand sanitizing stations available through the event, and health screenings and temperature checks for all.
