Community Festival

Contact: Steve and Kandi Smith
Phone Number: 614-578-3077

The purpose of the festival committee is to establish an annual parish-wide festival which promotes our faith based community, supports our parish organizations and maintains a permanent endowment for the long term support of the parish. Our fifth festival is scheduled for June 22 & 23, 2018!

We need many volunteers for the festival!  Opportunities range from set-up and tear-down, hosting midway games for kids and adults, food preparation, serving food, and much more.  Choose your favorite volunteer position and time slot via this sign-up!  Volunteers who sign-up before May 30 will receive a free t-shirt!  Also, mark your calendar for a volunteer appreciation party on Sunday, June 24.

We are also in need of sponsors and donations for our silent auction.  Please see this flyer for more information regarding all opportunities!

Because parking is limited at the church, overflow parking will be available at Big Walnut Middle School located at 777 Cheshire Rd. – shuttle service will be available to and from the church beginning at 3:00 PM.
State law requires ID for all alcohol sales.  So if you plan to purchase beer at the festival be sure to have your ID with you. No alcohol will be served without an ID and remember to drink responsibly.
