The St. Columba School and Church have come together as one parish to create an amazing Fall Festival this year. With plenty of fun and entertainment to enjoy, this family friendly event will be the perfect way to enjoy a nice October weekend with the whole family.
St. Columba School Fall Festival
Kicking off the weekend, we are hosting an Oktoberfest dinner on Friday night starting at 6pm. With an authentic German meal and great Oktoberfest brew this is a great way to get out and enjoy a night on the town.
Then on Saturday we’ll kick off the family friendly festivities at 12noon for a day filled with great bands, games, a talent show, and food from around the world.
On Sunday, the Men’s Club will be hosting a Pancake breakfast starting at 8am and running to 11am. Father Ed will be officiating an outdoor Mass at 9:30 and welcomes everyone to stay for the Festival after mass. The festival will kick off again at 11:00 for more fun, entertainment, and food!

The St. Columba Beer Brewers’ Competition is back! Win glory at the Oct. 19th Oktoberfest with TWO chances to win. The best homebrews will be determined by the decision of Benchmark Co. Master Craft Brewer Matt Akin AND by popular vote. Your ballot counts! All Oktoberfest attendees (21 and up) can taste the brews and vote for their favorite beer. The winners receive an engraved trophy beer stein.
Homebrewers, get your creative mash going! You know brewing can take 4+ weeks. If you plan to enter your homebrew, please email Maggie at email@example.com
Want to help out in other ways?
Here’s a few things we’re still looking for this year:
Baked Goods for our Cake Walk –
If you love to bake and want to help keep our Cake Walk stocked all weekend, we’d love your donation of baked goods (clearly marked with any allergens) on 10/18-10/19. Simply drop them off in the kitchen and label them Cake Walk so we know what they’re for!
Confetti Eggs –
As always, we want to keep our Confetti Eggs booth well stocked! And that means we need your help! We’re asking that each family contribute at least 2 dozen confetti eggs this year.
Please clearly label your box of eggs with your last name and child’s grade.
