Community Festival

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 seventh festival is scheduled for June 18 & 19, 2021!  All events will take place outside.  We will have Jet’s pizza available in the pavilion, delicious food from an array of local food trucks, live music, mechanical rides for the kids, a beer garden, a cash raffle, and a raffle for a Husqvarna zero-turn mower.  Ticket sales for the cash raffle and mower raffle begin May 15 & 16, after all the Masses.

Food Vendors:

Jet’s Pizza, Dan’s Deli, Zaki Grill, Sticky Fingers Ice Cream, Giant Lemonade Cup, Tasty Food Truck

Plus…Fair Novelties (funnel cakes, elephant ears)

Beer Garten

Rides:  Scat, Fun House, Happy Swing, Heart Flip, Slide, Boomerang; $1.50 per ticket, rides are 2 to 3 tickets per ride, sheet of 15 tickets is $20.00; ride wristbands are $25.00 (sold until 10 pm)

Off-site Festival Parking Information:  Due to expected high numbers of people coming to our festival, please plan to “Park & Ride” a shuttle bus from Big Walnut Middle School.  Shuttle buses will run continuous loops between school and church during the entire time of the festival, on both evenings, June 18-19.  It is a short, 5-minute bus ride between the school and church.  Please do NOT park on the grass or along any roadway near the church. There is plenty of parking at Big Walnut Middle School, 777 Cheshire Road, Sunbury 43074.  Handicap Parking WILL be available in the church parking lot. Attendees of 4 pm Mass on Saturday are encouraged to use the park and ride shuttle. Thank you for your cooperation!

Fr. Dan Dury will be the celebrant for the 4 pm Mass on Saturday, June 19.  Please join us for Mass, say hi to Fr. Dury (he will be our new pastor beginning next month!) and then stay for the festival fun.

We need many volunteers for the festival!  Opportunities range from set-up and tear-down, ticket cashiers, pavilion hosts, shuttle bus stop hosts, and more.  Click here to access the sign-up and choose your favorite volunteer position and time slot.

We are also in need of business sponsorships.  Please contact Deacon Carl Calcara if you are interested in sponsoring the festival.

Festival proceeds will benefit both parish and local community ministries.
