We welcome you to enjoy Saint Francis High School’s 33rd Annual Christmas At Our House.

Join us in community to celebrate the joy of the Christmas season.

Burns Family Pavilion

The Christmas At Our House Boutique has been a holiday shopping tradition for 33 years! Open Friday and Saturday, this year’s boutique will feature new and returning artisan vendors from around the Bay Area. Our shoppers will find gourmet foods, vintage and specialty gift items, unique holiday decor, artisan jewelry designers, distinctive fashion accessories and apparel. While you shop, don’t miss out on complimentary cookies, espresso drinks and gift wrapping. Check-off items from your gift list while supporting our school; all proceeds from the Gift Boutique benefit the Saint Francis Fund.

Please note that due to a shortage of on-campus parking before school dismissal at 2:30pm, we ask that guests visiting the Gift Boutique on Friday afternoon to park in the 2nd and 3rd levels of the El Camino Hospital parking garage accessible from Hospital Drive. Guests would enter campus from the gate adjacent to the garage and walk around the Graham Theater to the front of the Event Center. During non-school hours, guests may park in any open space on campus. Thank you!
