The Annual Nunan’s & Cafe Sarina Fall Festival, a popular North Shore MA tradition will be hosted on Sunday, October 22nd from 10 am to 3 pm featuring fall themed activities such as pumpkin decorating and corn maze as well as a visit from Curious Creatures, live music by Lee Biddle, artisan craft vendors and delicious fall flavored foods and treats. View the full list of activities and times below.

Fall festivals have long been a cherished tradition for expressing gratitude for the bountiful harvest and hope for a prosperous crop in the year to come. Similarly, the owners and extended family of Nunan’s & Cafe Sarina hold a deep appreciation for family bonds and the significance of savoring life’s blessings. Their daughter Sarina, who was diagnosed with Down syndrome shortly after birth, has been a remarkable source of inspiration for her family, friends and all who meet her. Sarina’s journey has taught them to fully embrace life, appreciate every blessing, and extend their gratitude and kindness to others in the community.

In the spirit of celebrating Sarina’s resilience and the values she embodies, Nunan’s Florist & Greenhouses and Cafe Sarina are excited to host their annual Fall Festival. During this event, a portion of all sales will be dedicated to supporting the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, an important cause aimed at promoting acceptance and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. This heartwarming initiative reflects the Nunan family’s commitment to making a positive impact in their community and spreading the message of compassion and support for all.
