Enjoy a British Village Faire on Saturday

Published on Jun 3, 2022

The British Home, Sierra Madre’s graceful non-profit independent and assisted-living facility for seniors, is holding its 2022 June Faire on Saturday, June 4, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

This annual event is family-friendly and is the only one annual event when the public can come on to the grounds of the British Home and enjoy themselves in a typical British village Faire atmosphere.

Admission is free.

Colorful booths, boutiques, and refreshment stands situated on the three-acre campus will offer hand-made arts and crafts, books, collectibles, personal accessories, and decorative items for sale. The event will also feature a display of vintage military vehicles.

Refreshments include something for everyone – bangers on a bun, traditional British fare, home-baked bread and pastries, strawberries and ice cream, and more. An outdoor Victorian Tea Room will be open for fairgoers to enjoy a leisurely “cuppa” and delicious English sweets and savories.

Adults are invited to enjoy traditional Morris and Scottish dances on the upper lawn during the afternoon. A beautiful bag-piper opens the faire. A congenial British Bobby and Beefeater will be strolling the grounds, happy to have their photo snapped, or to be included in a “selfie.”

One of the most popular Faire features is the Raffle Booth, where tickets may be purchased to enter the $2,000 Grand Prize Raffle. The first, second, and third place winners, who need not be present, are announced at the conclusion of the Faire.

One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the support of the British Home.

The British Home, an independent American owned 501(c)(3) corporation, is nestled in the attractive foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. The Home opened in 1931 after the Daughters of the British Empire (DBE) in the USA, a non-profit American women’s society, purchased the property. Today, The British Home reflects a typical retirement home populated by a diverse group of citizens and residents of many nationalities and walks of life, creating a harmonious and loving family home.

Licensed to accommodate 41 residents, the home maintains its historic uniqueness providing gracious, independent and assisted living in this secure and peaceful residential neighborhood.
