California, 647 Manzanita 
Avenue, Sierra Madre, 
on Saturday, June 1, from 
10:00 am to 2:30 pm. 

This festive, family-friendly 
event held annually at Sierra

independent and assisted 
living facility for seniors, 
offers British-style fun, 
food and entertainment for 
everyone from 5 to 105.

including ploughman’s 
lunches, English bangers, 
home-baked breads, 
pastries and savories, and 
a “proper” Victorian Tea 
Room will be available 
for your enjoyment 
throughout the day. Treat 
the kids to a hot dog, and a 
soda, topped off with a sno-
cone or refreshing bowl of 
strawberries and ice cream.

The Children’s Area is among the Faire’s most popular features. The fun begins with a stop at the face-
painting booth. Game booths, a bouncy house, sticky wall, water toss and bubble wand activities will 
provide hours of wholesome fun for the kids. 

Live entertainment will include bagpipers and adults and youngsters performing traditional Morris, 
Scottish and Irish dances.

Have your picture taken with a strolling “British Bobby” or “Beefeater.” Coming attired—British 
style—in the garb of your favorite historical era is also encouraged.

The British Home is located in a residential area, with parking along Ramona and Manzanita Avenues, 
as well as on the side streets. For more information, please call (626) 355-7240 or visit our website:
