Daisy Days

Friday, April 27-Saturday, April 28, 2018

Daisy Days is St. Catherine’s annual spring carnival joining St. Catherine’s students, alumnae, Richmond area parents and their children for two days of entertainment and activities. Sponsored by our Parents’ Association, Daisy Days kicks off on Friday, April 27, 2018, at 11 a.m. Vendor Shops in the Kenny Center and the Garden Tent on the Green are open to the public. The Vendor Shops include over 70 vendors from all over the East Coast and MidWest who sell a variety of unique products and services. Saturday, April 28, 2018, the carnival begins at 10 a.m. on our St. Catherine’s Green! It’s attractions include children’s rides, games, inflatables, dance performances, and food. Grades K-5 choreograph and dance both individual and class pieces for the ever-popular “Puttin’ on the Hits” show. Our fourth graders continue a great St. Catherine’s tradition by performing the annual Maypole dance on the Green. The Vendor Shops and the Garden Tent are open a second day during the Saturday carnival.

    Daisy Days began in the mid 1970’s, initially offering a few vendors for shopping and a small number of entertainment activities for students. Over the years, it has grown substantially into one of the Parents’ Association’s largest fundraising events, attracting close to 3,000 attendees. The money raised from Daisy Days is used to fund special school projects. In previous years, the proceeds have helped underwrite much needed facility improvements like the installation of air-conditioning in many of the older campus facilities and brick work across the campus.
     
    Daisy Days is more than a fundraising carnival. It is a much-anticipated tradition that joins our St. Catherine’s community in stewardship and volunteerism to support our school. The spirit of the effort from our volunteers, faculty, and community to support this school-bonding event is captured by St. Catherine’s time-honored motto: “What we keep we lose and only what we give remains our own.” We are striving to strengthen our school’s sense of community while providing a day of fun for children to enjoy with their parents, friends, and teachers.

Daisy Days is St. Catherine's School annual spring time carnival. It brings thousands of school families and community friends together every April. This event would not be the wonderful community-builder and fundraiser that it is without the many hours of volunteer service provided by the Daisy Days Committee throughout the school year. A heartfelt thanks goes out to this year's Daisy Days Committee!*
