Entertainment

In honor of our 150th anniversary, we're putting a new and exciting spin on this year's entertainment. Our headliner will be Hitchville, a country super-group favorite among the Midwest. Think it can't get any better? It can! Five additional entertainers will join us for the evening. With a mix of music, comedy, juggling and more, this year's Fall Fest will be a carnival, comedy and concert in one! 

Hitchville - Fall Fest Headliner

Y'all better dust off your cowboy boots; country super-group Hitchville is coming to town. Vocalists Heidi Owens and Matthew Kneefe lead the seven-member group as they dazzle audiences across the upper Midwest with razor sharp harmonies, world class music and palpable energy. They've left their mark at Country Fest, Ramble Jam, and We Fest, just to name a few. (Photo credit: Hitchville.com)

Worship

Nothing like Mass under the tent, sharing in worship in the fresh air, to kick off our community celebration. Mass begins at 4 p.m. this year, with dinner and Fall Fest activities beginning at 5 p.m.

Food and Fun

We're adding new activities to our Fall Fest lineup, plus favorites from last year including kids’ games, face painting and BINGO. In addition, we'll have a variety of food options--some new, others from years past. 

Friday Movie Night

Our Friday Movie Night is back again. We will be watching "Miracle"​—in the great outdoors!
