Have Fun With the Family at Taft School's Community Fair Saturday

Enjoy bounce houses, face painting, good food and drink, music and performances and more, all to benefit the students.

Art and wine festival season may be over, but fun local fairs and festivals aren't!

For example, if you're looking for something fun to do with the family this Saturday, try heading over to the Taft Community Fair, from 12-4 p.m.

There promises to be fun for all ages, and all proceeds directly benefit the school by paying for supplies and field trips for the students year-round.

Just a few of the fair's features include:

  • Jumpers/bounce houses
  • face painting
  • games
  • ice cream
  • cake walk
  • food like tacos, tamales, pozole and corn on the cob
  • delicious sweets like cotton candy and popsicles
  • live performances throughout the day from groups like Mrs. Morales' dance group, Zumba, Mexico Vivo!, the Community Street Jam, PAL Karate, Salto Norteno and more.
  • Music by DJ Bay Boss Luis Rodriguez


Esmerelda Martin of Taft Community School says, "Taft Community School is dedicated to providing a quality education to all students. We currently serve 570 students in kindgarten through fifth grades."

"Within our student population, 76 percent are English learners, and 100 qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Fifty-seven percent come from homes in which the parents did not graduate from high school," she continued.

"This fundraiser is a wonderful way to support these students and help them to gain the education they need to continue successfully in school, and in life."

Taft Community School is located at 903 10th Ave. in Redwood City.
