I’m a Mets fan, but this is one Yankee event even I will go to. Mostly because it’s not about the New York baseball Yankees but about bouncy inflatables and baked goods. It’s the Plymouth Church Yankee Fair, Saturday November 6th from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. More information after the jump.
On the day of Yankee Fair, the Orange Street block between Hicks and Henry Streets and the lower floors of the Plymouth Church campus are transformed into a fairground of activities and shopping. This daylong event features a festive mix of children’s rides and games, home cooking and handcrafted gifts, and a shopping extravaganza of antiques, collectibles, vintage and designer clothing, prepared foods, books, toys and gently used children’s clothing.
Yankee Fair is organized and staffed by volunteers from the Plymouth Church congregation and the Plymouth Church School Parents’ Association. This year, Yankee Fair proceeds will support renovations to Plymouth’s historic, and therefore old, buildings. The Christian Help Committee will match up to $10,000 of the proceeds with a grant to — and divided equally between — these local charities: Brooklyn Young Mothers’ Collective, which provides disadvantaged young mothers with a comprehensive set of services focused on educational attainment and social development, and Christian Help in Park Slope, an organization dedicated to helping the poor, the homeless, and those in emergency situations in Brooklyn, through the gifts of food and shelter.
