Saint Dennis Summer Festival

Mark July 29, 30 & 31, 2016 on Your Calendars for the 60th Annual Saint Dennis Festival!

Planning for this social highlight of the year begins well in advance. This is a great opportunity for the Saint Dennis community to join with our East Side neighbors for a weekend of fun and fellowship. But just as important, this event is the largest fundraiser for our church and school.
