The Junior League of El Paso's, A Christmas Fair 2020 team, is proud to announce an exciting reinvention of our annual, iconic holiday event. Now in its 47th year, A Christmas Fair will continue to kick off the holiday season, bringing that undeniable holiday spirit to our beloved city of El Paso. While our traditional fair is not possible this year, the Junior League of El Paso, Inc. continues to support our community through our various projects, for which A Christmas Fair is our primary fundraiser. We invite you to join us in the magic of the season, from socially-distant special events to virtual events; this year, A Christmas Fair brings the meaning of the season to our community. This year's theme: "There's snow place like A Christmas Fair" is more timely than ever.  

The après has just begun, raise a glass of bubbly, it's about to get snow fun because There's snow place like A Christmas Fair!
