HOLIDAY FAIR

A timeless event at Westwood and within the community, the Westwood Holiday Fair occurs every November before Thanksgiving using the time and talents of members and friends to raise funds supporting Westwood’s mission goals of outreach locally and worldwide. 

Holiday Fair is a charitable, nonprofit, intergenerational event sponsored by Westwood Lutheran Church, St. Louis Park, MN. All funds raised are given in grants to organizations that help improve the lives of others.

In 2023 following the November Holiday Fair, grants were given to 16 organizations who had applied for grants. In the biggest distribution ever -- Holiday Fair gave a total of $34,000!

Look for small items children can buy as holiday gifts for their parents. This includes jewelry, knick-knacks, small vases, small toys, other little treasures that children might select for Mom, Dad or a sibling.  Toys at the 'Fish Pond' include Happy Meal Toys and similar small items.  Volunteers are also needed to help in the Children's Shop and with gift wrapping.
