The main financial support of the monastery is the Annual Fair, which is normally held on the third Sunday in September (September 16, 2018) from 11:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.

We have many ethnic foods such as Mexican food, Italian food, and Asian Cuisine as well as burgers and hot dogs, and ice cream. In addition to the wonderful food, every hour there is entertainment such as Live Auction, Steel band, Utah Basque Dancers, Utah Pipe Band, the OPA Greek Dancers, The WestSide Mexican folk dancers and the Chinese Lion Dance and Passion Flamenca. You and your children will be very pleased with all of the activities we offer at the fair.

There are rides and games of all sorts for the children. There are handicraft items made by the Sisters and friends of the Community. Each year we have approximately 3000 patrons come to the fair and our volunteer work force reaches around 300 people of all ages. Part of the entertainment consists in one hour of Live Auction. The prizes are beautiful hand-made art works by the nuns and donations of gift certificates and items from businesses in the Salt Lake area and Park City areas. We have also hold a silent auction which goes on all day and is very popular.

The behind-the-scenes activity in getting ready for the fair requires many hours for a week before and a week afterwards for clean-up. All able-bodied persons are welcome to participate in this activity. The Set-up begins this year on Saturday, September 8th at 9am and everyday thereafter from 9am to sunset.

This year besides the beautiful crimson red, hybrid, sport utility 2018 Kia Niro with back up camera, auto & manual transmission and 52 mpg, which is offered as our special Prize Giveaway, the Carmelite Fair proudly presents many interesting and popular items such as the popular Traeger Grill/Smoker valued $1,000.00, an Apple iPad, side of beef, $200.00 cash, and many more unique items listed for Live and Silent Auctions.

Our Carmelite Fair has become a cultural event for the city of Holladay. Thanks to the generosity of many faithful friends and donors, a new addition to the Fair was established in 2010- the 5K Run or Walk "Run for the Nuns - Race for Grace." So this is our 9th 5K Run/Walk "Run for the Nuns" - "Race for Grace"
