The Festival Quilt has been constructed by the St. Odilia Fall Festival Quilters. The pattern is “Sweet Dreams” by designer Lissa Alexander. The queen size quilt measures approximately 78 x 96 and is done in St. Odilia colors, red and white. First opportunity to view the quilt and purchase tickets will be after masses July 13-14. (Quilt raffle tickets remain the same; 5 for $5 or $2 for a single ticket.)
Kids Obstacle Course! Sign your child up for their first "race", get a T-shirt and win game tickets. Open to kids ages 1-10. For more information or to download the registration form, click HERE.
Live Auction: 50 years of Fall Festivals requires a new and different focus. We are looking for 50 amazing Live Auction items from the 1950's to present, that are no longer valuable to you but will bring a smile to someone else and a high value bid on Saturday evening from 6-10:00 pm. Auction containers will be available starting Sat. August 17. See flyer for more information.
Silent Auction: The Basket making team enjoys being creative with your donated items but they enjoy baskets already designed and completely wrapped too! The basket making team challenges you to donate items, baskets and ribbon this year, but they are also throwing out a new challenge. They are looking for 50 pre-made baskets valued at $50 or more. If you don't have the cellophane bring the items in a basket and the team will wrap it up. See flyer for more information.
Join us for an unforgetable weekend of live music, games, entertainment, bingo, a marketplace, silent and live auctions, raffles, a petting zoo, inflatables for the kids, and a variety of Festival Food from our Food Trucks!

- Book Nook: Books, Cd’s/DVD’s games and puzzles for all ages in quality condition
