Description

This is the 31st annual Alternative Gift Fair in Riverside, a community wide effort that draws from a variety of faith traditions to offer an alternative to mall shopping this holiday season. The fair has handmade baskets and jewelry from Ten Thousand Villages, greeting cards and purses from artists at Temple Beth El, and scarves and other clothing from a Hindu tradition.
Vegetable soup and bread makes this an easy lunch stop. Children’s activities include art and sometimes there are even bunnies to pet. Just a few of the organizations involved: the co-host Universalist Unitarians; Quakers; Temple Beth El; Inland Communities Fellowship of Reconciliation; United Methodist Women; Habitat for Humanity; Heifer International; Madison Street Church; and others.


Cost: Free
