The Annual Christmas Shoppe & Cafe
Friday, November 9 | 10am – 8pm
Saturday, November 10 | 10am – 5pm
For two days each year, the Patrons’ Association transforms the Academy into an exclusive shopping and dining experience. Please join us for this beloved annual tradition and important Patrons’ fundraiser, with 100% of proceeds directly benefiting the students.
Browse the collection of over 40 vendors offering unique items, including beautiful jewelry, original artwork, antiques, and much more. Get a head start on your holiday shopping list, or find something special just for you.
The Lunch Café
Take a break from shopping and refuel with something delicious from our Lunch Café. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and kids meals are all on the menu, along with assorted non-alcoholic drinks, wine and champagne by the glass, and beer and ale.
The Gourmet Dinner
On Friday night, adults are invited to the St. James Center for a fabulous gourmet dinner, catered by our very own SJA Culinary Crew, including everything from their famous Cream of Crab Soup, to lamb chops, to filet, to sea bass.
Order dinner tickets!
As with all Patrons’ events, the key to the success of the Christmas Shoppe is our volunteers. This is a massive effort, and we can’t do it without you. We need help in all areas, including decorating, food prep, servers, porters, and many more. Please consider donating a little time or a lot of time.
