The Fall Fest committee is actively seeking out volunteers to help staff Fall Fest 2018.  As you know, Fall Fest is one of the parish’s key fund raising efforts and a large portion of the money raised during the weekend goes directly to support school operations.  Fall Fest is also a true community event that brings together families and friends for a fun-filled weekend.  Please consider volunteering some of your time between Thursday, September 13th and Sunday, September 16th to help make this Fall Fest the best ever.

Most shifts are two to three hours in length.  Please consider signing up today.  You can even sign up with a friend.  Volunteering is also a great opportunity for children to earn service hours.

If you have any questions, please contact the Fall Fest committee at

We are optimistic that the 2018 Fall Fest will be even more successful than last year’s record setting event that raised much-needed funds and was attended by thousands of people.

As the largest parish in the Chicago Archdiocese, St. Michael Parish traditionally has marked the start of the fall season with a family-friendly event that features top bands, great food and drink from local favorites, the popular “Man Cave,” with 3 big screen televisions, a carnival produced by Windy City Amusements, and of course Fall Fest Grand Raffle with a grand prize of $10,000.

All sponsors at $250 and above can provide signage that will be displayed to the thousands of Fall Fest attendees.  In addition, sponsors are promoted on our website and weekly church bulletins, as well as in all paid advertising materials that appear across print and online publications such as Chicago Tribune and 21st Century Media. 

Sponsorships are available at varying levels.
