With fall just around the corner, plans are in full swing for our 2019 Harvest Festival and Sale! This year’s event will be Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the church grounds. Now in its ninth year, the Festival is a wonderful way to celebrate the bounty of God’s harvest as we welcome our community to St. Andrew’s for a day of shopping, food, music, entertainment, and fun.
We’re still accepting vendors for our Vendors Market, as well as Food Trucks. The registration fee is $35. Participants will have the advantage of publicity on our website and social media, and everywhere our Harvest Festival is advertised. For more information, please contact Rachel Cherubini at 740-548-5112, ext. 1, or email@example.com.
We’ll once again be conducting our popular rummage sale in conjunction with the Festival. Drop-off dates for your tax-deductible donation of items are Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Sunday, Sept. 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Tuesday, Sept. 24, from Noon to 2 p.m.
We’re adding a new twist to our Festival raffle, with drawings for a variety of themed gift baskets featuring food and entertainment packages, and other items. Raffle tickets will be sold at the Festival for $1 each, or six for $5, and may be placed in the drawing for whichever basket or baskets the buyer is interested in.
Baskets will be on display at the Festival, with the drawing held between 1:45 and 2 p.m. that day. Members of St. Andrew’s will get a sneak peek at the baskets the Sunday before.
Music & Entertainment
We’ll have music throughout the day, with Calling of Levi, our contemporary worship band that leads us in songs of praise at the 11:15 a.m. Sunday service; and Randy Smith, a member of our choir, who will sing the oldies. 104.9 The River will return, bringing their top contemporary Christian songs, games, and giveaways.
Fun & Games
There will be fun & games aplenty for kids of all ages, including our crowd-favorite Hayride and Pumpkin Patch. And yes, those inflatable bounces will be back again this year!
We’ve also confirmed that the Orange Township Fire Department will return with “Touch a Truck.” For animal enthusiasts, the Delaware County Humane Society will bring some of their pets seeking “furever” homes, and wild animal ambassadors from For All Species of Westerville will be on hand with a variety of creatures.
