BIG MOOSE -- The annual Big Moose Community Chapel Bazaar will take place rain or shine Saturday, Aug. 2, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the chapel five miles west of Eagle Bay on Big Moose Road.

Family entertainer Fritz Henry will perform two free shows, at 10:45 a.m. and noon, behind the chapel lakeside. Henry's fun and interactive performances have entertained children of all ages in and around the Adirondacks for many years.

His two sets will include classic children's songs as well as sing-along originals and folk and pop classics for the young at heart.

The chapel is celebrating 82 years of worship in the Adirondacks. The bazaar is known for offering unique Adirondack and holiday crafts, "moosey" items of all sorts, and the aromatic balsam pillows which are created at the Balsam Bee a week before the bazaar.


The balsam pillows feature loon, moose, hummingbird, pine cone, and chapel designs. Traditionally the pillows sell quickly. This year a limited number of "vintage" pillows of various sizes and with designs from years past will be sold.

"Loons' Call," a queen-size quilt made and hand-quilted by the local Pointed Pine Quilters, will be raffled at the bazaar. Raffle tickets may be purchased the day of the bazaar or at the chapel between Sunday services up until the bazaar date.

A stained glass panel by Janet Edelman will also be raffled the day of the bazaar. Back by popular demand are Big Moose Lake glassware and ADK Girl moose pottery.


The bazaar is family-friendly (no pets, please) and has something for everyone: a bake sale featuring homemade fruit pies, silent and Chinese auctions, ice cream, a Christmas table, a garden and plant booth, chapel items, and one-of-a-kind Big Moose clothing for children and adults

Tours of the chapel will be given throughout the day, while fun and games for children of all ages, including toddlers, will be on the lawn lakeside with lots of prizes.

Guided party barge tours of Big Moose Lake (weather permitting) will leave regularly from the dock, with prices for adults and children under age 12. And the Hungry Moose Cafe will feature plenty of good food and lots of seating under the pines.
