On Saturday, November 18—the same day as the Lebanon Holiday Parade—St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at 22 S. 6th Street, Lebanon,  will host their annual holiday bazaar. The public is encouraged to attend this event, which is a local tradition for many families.

The bazaar will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with lots of items for sale to satisfy both hungry parade-goers and Christmas shoppers. The Bazaar Marketplace has Polly’s Pantry (delicious homemade jams, jellies, salsa, and other delicacies), The Sweet Shoppe (homemade candy, cookies, pies, breads, and other items just in time for the holidays), as well as a jewelry corner (selection of new and gently used jewelry), a houseplant stand, a used book sale, and a chance to win one of the interesting theme raffle baskets that have been assembled. There will also be a “Children’s Corner” with fun activities for kids. Santa may even take a moment to visit! The church will be open to tour and there will be live music offered through the day.

“The St. Luke’s Holiday bazaar is a Lebanon tradition,” says Meghan Sidelnick, bazaar committee chair. “I’m so proud to be part of a group of dedicated volunteers working hard to bring everything together to make this year’s event another memorable experience for our community.”

A team of parishioners has worked to transform the church auditorium into a holiday wonderland, ready for the display of treats and gifts. This year they had help from members of Boy Scout Troop 20 of Myerstown, PA. 

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is located on 6th Street between Chestnut and Cumberland Streets with entrances on 6th Street. The buildings are accessible for those with mobility challenges by way of the street-level entrance (look for the red doors) and an elevator that accesses all levels.
