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)
Known as "America's Everyday Comedian," C. Willi Myles gives a spin of humor to the ups and downs of everyday life. He's a veteran performer with the gift of connecting people through hilarious and relatable storytelling. (Photo credit: G.L. Berg Entertainment)
Magic and comedy come face-to-face when Tim Gabrielson takes the stage. Though the use of quick wit, interactive magic and a playful spirit, Tim takes his audiences on thoroughly enlivening and entertaining comedic rides. (Photo credit: flickr.com/photos/timgabrielson/)
Simply put, Sean Emery is a hilarious guy jugglin' stuff. He's known for wowing audiences of all ages with out-of-this-world juggling stunts and circus tricks. It's all about fun and laughter when Sean's around. (Photo credit: G.L. Berg Entertainment)
Yo-yo artist Britton Pankratz took an old hobby and made it cool again. Forget about "Walking the Dog," Britton's creativity and skills will surpass all yo-yo tricks you've ever seen. (Photo credit: G.L. Berg Entertainment)
Singer-songwriter-comedian Kier uses his versatile talents to entertain crowds of all kinds. A little bit of this and a little bit of that make for perfectly entertaining experiences with Kier. (Photo credit: heykier.com/Home.htm)
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! Movie showing time is 8 p.m., but we welcome you to come early at 7:30 p.m. to find a spot and get your treats. Please feel free to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Popcorn and candy will be available for purchase.
