Fall Fest is a fun and exciting 3-day church festival and community celebration that occurs annually on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday after Labor Day. Taking place every year since 1982, it is one of the oldest and most significant annual community events in the borough of Emmaus, drawing our neighbors from all of the surrounding communities and beyond.

Fall Fest is the only fundraiser held at St. Ann's whose proceeds directly subsidize our parish operating budget - including maintenance of our facilities, educational programs, local community outreach programs, Diocesan missions, and St. Ann School. We count on Fall Fest's income to help us meet our budget.

Join us for great live music, homemade ethnic food, kid-friendly All-American food and desserts, carnival rides and games, a beer garden, raffles, nightly BINGO (of course) and so much more!

JOIN THE FALL FEST TEAM

Fall Fest brings people to Christ by attracting hundreds of our neighbors from Emmaus and the surrounding communities to be with us and to experience our Christian friendship. Many of our visitors might be wondering about St. Ann's, and what our parish has to offer. Serving at Fall Fest is a great opportunity for us to welcome them and invite them into our parish family.

If you would like to get to know some of the finest people you could ever meet, please consider becoming a part of the Fall Fest Committee. We all have LOTS of fun, and involvement on the committee has led to great friendships (and a wedding or two!) among its members.
 

WANT TO BECOME PART OF FALL FEST?

Fall Fest is only possible because of volunteers like you! From planning, to set up, to cooking, to serving, to tear-down, there are many ways to get involved, including large and small commitments of time - any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Our Committee meetings begin in May, and all are welcome to attend.

2017 Fall Fest Committee Meetings (Tentative):

6/13, 7/11, 8/1, 8/15, 8/22 and 8/29 at 7:00 pm in the Parish Life Center, 526 Fairview St., Emmaus, PA 18049 (across from the Church).
