The Fauntleroy Fall Festival is an annual neighborhood celebration brought to you by the Fauntleroy Community Association, Fauntleroy Church UCC, West Seattle/Fauntleroy YMCA, Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes Catering, Endolyne Joe’s, Fauntleroy Children’s Center, Little Pilgrim School, Fauntleroy Schoolhouse, and members of the Fauntleroy community.
Join the fun on Sunday, October 11!
The biggest event of the Fauntleroy community year takes place this coming week! Here’s the information you need to plan your day:
Calling all bakers
The Annual Cake Decorating Contest and Cake Walk is part of the Fauntleroy Fall Festival for the fifth year in a row! We need lots of cakes to make this event a success.
Cakes can be of any shape or size and should be decorated with a fall or West Seattle theme. Join the fun—just bake and decorate a cake! It can be from very simple or very elaborate—you decide. This is a wonderful parent/child or multigenerational project.
There are three categories, from beginner to advanced. Cakes should be brought to the Hall at Fauntleroy (across the street from the church) between 12 noon and 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 11. Voting will take place from 1–3 p.m. The votes will be tallied and the prizes awarded to winners in each category. Then the Cake Walk begins and will continue until all the cakes have been given away.
For more information about the cake decorating contest and cake walk, e-mail Carolyn Tucker (firstname.lastname@example.org).
During the Fall Festival, Fauntleroy Children’s Center—at the north end of Fauntleroy Schoolhouse—will make space available in the toddler classroom for diaper changes, relaxation, cookies and cider. In the Center’s center hallway, young children can take part in leaf water colors, monster puppets, and a spider ring toss game.

Fauntleroy Fall Festival 2015 Fundraiser
On Tuesday, May 5 (5 p.m. on), come to Endolyne Joe’s (9261 45th Ave SW, Seattle) for drinks, dinner, or dessert. Once again, Endolyne Joe’s has graciously offered to hold a Fauntleroy Fall Festival fundraising evening at their restaurant. A percentage of the evening’s sales will be returned to help cover expenses this fall. This is a fun evening for the whole community, and costs nothing more than the meal and drinks you order. See you there!
