Saint Dennis Summer Festival

Held annually during the last full weekend of July, the Saint Dennis Parish Festival has two main purposes: to raise money for the parish/school, and more importantly, to bring parishioners together in a spirit of community.

This year’s Festival was jam packed with fun for the whole family. There was Bingo in the air conditioned Parish Center and games for all ages to win fun prizes.  Live entertainment was provided in the family and beer tents which included jazz, rock, polka, classic rock and oldies. Treasures of all kinds were found in the 1000 item Family Flea Market and book tent.
