Ascension Italian Food Festival
July 9 & 10 – Ascension Parish Grounds

Ascension Church will be hosting our first ever Food Festival, Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10. This summer event is only possible with the help and collaboration of all parishioners. While we are seeking volunteers to work and patrons to attend the festival, there are also many other ways to contribute your time and talents. 

Below you will find a list of items that will be used at the Food Festival. All of these items can easily be purchased locally. The more donations of supplies we receive, the less we must buy. 

We thank you all in advance for your generosity! We also look forward gathering together as a parish community and celebrating another successful Ascension Italian Food Festival.

Donations can be dropped off at Ascension Church during daily and weekend Masses.
