25th Annual Takoma Park Alternative Gift Fair
December 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Alternative Gifts of Greater Washington is thrilled to announce that the Alternative Gift Fair will be returning to the Takoma Park Presbyterian Church (310 Tulip Avenue) on December 2nd, 2023 from 12-4PM for our 25th Anniversary!
In our 24 years of operating, we have raised over $500,000 for local, direct service charities, creating meaningful change in our community and around the globe.
At this in-person holiday festival you can celebrate with family and friends as you listen to live music from our local musicians, purchase a delicious treat from our scrumptious bake-sale, play to win your favorite Downtown Takoma Shoppes raffle item or receive a free 15 minute seated massage!
Throughout the afternoon, you will be able to speak with the volunteers of our 14 participating small nonprofits and learn interesting details about the work they do in the world. With an Alternative Gift, holiday “shopping” means donating to nonprofits in the name of your loved ones. Alternative Gifts are gifts of donation that fill a direct and tangible need, such as a week’s worth of fresh, local veggies for a local family, or a classroom set of books for readers at the DC Jail.
Can’t make the Alternative Gift Fair? No problem! You can shop the fair online at aggw.org from 11/19/23-1/3/24.
Give gifts of donation this holiday season and make a real impact locally and globally!
