The St. Stanislaus Festival

Fifty-seven years ago, the parishioners of St. Stanislaus took a break from an escalating Cold War and from the closing of the Berlin Wall to inaugurate the annual St. Stanislaus Summer Festival. Now, warm nights, great music, plenty of snacks and beverages are the perfect accompaniments for this annual summer event.  The Festival dates for this year are August 14th thru the 18th! 

Highlights of the St. Stans Festival include:

  • Great food in the Beer Garden. Enjoy a sausage sandwich, pierogi, or burger, along with water ice, funnel cake and other festival food. 
  • Family-friendly rides! A Ferris wheel, booth games, Tilt-a-Whirl, and other favorites.
  • Music! Live bands close each evening — we host fan favorites and invite a few new sounds each year.

Volunteer to help!

Ours is the longest-running festival in the area, but it can’t continue without you! Volunteering for the Festival is a great way to meet new people while supporting an important Parish fundraiser.  Consider signing up for one, two, or all days!  Help is also needed with the Garage Sale — this ongoing event raises money to assist with Festival planning. Click the link below to access the volunteer sign-up form.  You will not be required to register with the website to sign up; you will only be asked for contact information so we can get in touch with you.  You will have the opportunity to select days, times, and tasks.
