About May Fair
St. Mark’s May Fair is a 73-year New Canaan tradition. Originally a small community event known as the “Strawberry Festival,” the Fair has grown over the years, gradually adding plants for Mother’s Day, a variety of food, rides, and games as well as a tag sale to its offerings—all to raise funds for St. Mark’s
ministries, outreach programs and grants. St. Mark’s Outreach Grants Commission receives applications from worldwide nonprofit organizations annually and awards grants based upon the organization’s positive impact in the community and in the world around us.

COVID Protocol
St. Mark’s leadership will work in accordance with the town of New Canaan to follow current Covid guidelines.
