Plans and preparations have already begun for Applefest 2016! This year Applefest will be held Friday, September 16 to Sunday, September 18, 2016, so be sure to mark your calendars for some family fun at our annual parish fundraiser. Friday and Saturday will be from 5pm until midnight, and Sunday will be from 11am until 2pm.
Applefest 2015 featured exciting additions such as a chance to shake hands with Fredbird, an up close personal visit with a Clydesdale, meet and greet with “Elsa & Anna”, and much more. This year is sure to have something special as well!
Kicking off the event on Friday will be games, inflatables, basket raffle, food, and beverages. We are working on some new ideas for our evening entertainment, so be sure to join us to see what we come up with!
Saturday will continue with games, inflatables, basket raffle, food and beverages. St. Ambrose Got Talent will once again be taking the stage to showcase all of our gifted students. A big hit was the new Wine Garden that debuted at Applefest 2015 and will be returning in 2016. Many other exciting things are in the works to make this evening memorable for all that attend.
Be sure to show your support by purchasing tickets to our Grand Raffle that will be on sale during the summer. Tickets will be available in the church bulletin for purchase, as well as at the entrances. This is a great way to help make our fundraiser a success, and possibly even win a nice cash prize.
There are many other activities and events being planned for Applefest by Chairs Kevin and Mary Kline and the committee. Please be sure to watch the church bulletin and Fast Direct through school for more updates. If you would like to volunteer or donate to Applefest, please contact Kevin and Mary via FastDirect. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
