Podcast: ‘May Fair’ Returns in 2022


David Shea

This week on 0684-Radi0, our free podcast (subscribe here in the iTunes Store), we talk to David Shea, who serves as co-chair of May Fair (see video embedded below), along with “Holy SmokerGeorge Wright. After two years of cancellations due to the pandemic, the hugely popular May Fair is back on—scheduled for Friday, May 6th (4 to 9 p.m.) and Saturday May 7th (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.). We talk to David about what May Fair’s all about, including the organizations that benefit from it, what goes into organizing May Fair, what’s on offer this year and also, ways that organizers are introducing new features for New Canaan’s growing community of young families.

We also note here that nearly 400 volunteers are needed to put on the May Fair and there are slots open—those who are interested can call the St. Mark’s church office 203-966-4515 or email info@stmarksnewcanaan.org. In addition, donations for the May Fair tag sale are welcome, they’re taking drop-offs at the church house of toys, art work, jewelry and find goods, and people may call in for pickups of furniture and housewares. Some of the items that the May Fair is not taking include electronics, large rugs and old gym equipment.
