The event features two levels of shopping fun! In addition to many talented vendors , Carpe Noctem offers various dinner options, wine, beer, and tasty desserts, all available to purchase. Children can enjoy face-painting, a photo op with St. Nicholas, and coloring activities. Customers will receive a complementary drink with their paid entrance of $5 into the Holiday Market. All children 12 and under are free! The Carpe Noctem Holiday Market is a wonderful event that supports the students of St. Jerome Academy. The proceeds from this annual fundraising event go directly towards helping fund the cost of our children’s education. Community support is vital to our success and St. Jerome’s has been a member of the Hyattsville community for 75 years. The school prides itself on teaching students in a classical curriculum and is supported by a vibrant and engaged community of families and alumni. When you support St. Jerome Academy, you are not only supporting the school, but the Hyattsville community as well.
