Sunday June 23 3-9pm
Start your day off with lunch from our Fabulous Food Court beginning at 1 pm after 11:30 mass. The festival officially opens the games, rides and other booths at 3pm. Sunday will be in full swing when you hear the funky sounds and a great beat from The Company, who takes the mainstage on Sunday from 4-8 pm. This is a great night to bring the family up for dinner, enjoy the evening and sit back to enjoy tunes from the 70's to today!
This year's Bid-N-Buy tent has packages and items on which to bid that you will NOT be able to pass up! From parish icon items like yearly mass parking spots to baskets that appeal to all age groups, there is something under this big top that will appeal to every festival patron!
This year, Bid-N-Buy will have two types of items/packages. In order to take advantage of the many opportunities to bid on or win packages, everything you will need is on this website. The types of items and baskets up for bid this year are:
1. Baskets and Items using Pre-Purchased Bid-N-Buy Drop Tickets
As in years past, festival patrons can purchase drop tickets with their name and number to put in containers in front of the many beautiful baskets displayed under the big top. The festival committee will collect these tickets all weekend long. The winners of each basket will be pulled and announced on Sunday evening.
So what's new? This year, you can pre-purchase your drop tickets prior to the beginning of festival using this website. You will also be able to purchase drop tickets at the festival.
What do you do? Please find the "Buy Drop Tickets" button above, right under the festival logo at the top left side of this webpage. When you click on that button, it will take you to a another webpage where you can register and pre-purchase your drop tickets. That way, you will be ready to go as soon as the Bid-N-Buy tent opens for business on Friday at 6pm!
2. Items and baskets up for continual bid during the festival
There will also be items and baskets this year that will be up for continual bid during the weekend. Many of these silent auction items are parish perennial favorites like reserved pews for Christmas Mass but also include things like Dale Robertson Jewelry and so much more.
So what's new?? This year, you can bid in person at the festival but you can also bid at home using your smartphone! Yes, by completing a simple registration, you can view all items and baskets up for continual bid all weekend long! You can also keep track of your bids and if you've been outbid by another festival patron! All this happens with a simple text to your smartphone! It's easy and it's fun! Never lose out on an item you'd like to purchase again!
What do you do? In order to register to bid with your smartphone, please go to:
