Annual Church Fair

Our next fair will be held on

Friday November 3rd


Saturday November 4th 2023

The flier below is from last year but shows a summary of the event

You can step back to the time when you visit South Cong’s Annual Fair held in Braintree’s oldest continuously used religious edifice. You will find there is something for everyone and to make it even better it is open both Friday evening and Saturday!

Church members have been preparing all year resulting in quality handcrafted items, South Shore’s largest house plant table, a treasure trove of costume jewelry, baked goods, frozen apple pies ready to bake, a large white elephant room, soups and cheese to go, handmade knit goods and vintage linens, candy and fudge, wreaths and bows and more. There is also a large choice of gift baskets and raffle items to choose from.

South’s Fair is one of the few area fairs open on Friday evening allowing even those with busy Saturday schedules to attend this long standing tradition so steeped in our area churches. Friday night you can have an Italian dinner from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM and shop from 5:30 to 8:00 PM.

The Fair opens again Saturday morning at 9:00AM (with coffee and doughnuts). Our sandwich lunch bar will lunch from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The fair is open for shopping from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

All are welcome.

For info call 781-843 5155. The Church is located at 1075 Washington Street at the corner of Pond Street in Braintree.

What do we need?

  • The plant table will be happy to take your tired old house plans or take cutting of your house plants this spring and over the summer transform them into beautiful house plants. The table can use all sorts of pots and plant related materials. These can be left at the church or arrangements can be made for pick up.

  • Used and broken jewelry can be left at the Church for re-use or even repurposing by some of our crafty church members. This includes old broken watches, pins, and necklace

  • Wine corks.

  • Hand made crafts.

  • Bakers for baked goods.

  • Individuals and committees to make raffle baskets.

  • Locations for advertising signs. (Do you live on a busy street?)

  • Sales People.

  • People to help with set up before and clean up after the Fair.

Many hands make for a light load. Please plan on being a part of this exciting annual event. Keep your calendar clear for the weekend of the Fair.
