An annual street Fair ....
In May 1935, the En Ka Society held its first street fair. It was a novelty to Winchester and was a huge success, attracting thousands. The first fair was held in the parking lot at the rear of Town Hall, running from Washington Street to what is now known as Sandy’s Island. Brightly painted posts, balloons, and a sign marked the entrance to the “street.”
Continuing to this day, the En Ka fair marks the beginning of summer for many citizens, old and young alike. The fair is the largest fundraiser for En Ka, raising over $1,000,000 in the last ten years alone. Funds raised through this community-wide event support the organizations grant making efforts through- out the year.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions / concerns / suggestions.
