Festival Guide 2018

The Big List

For many families, it’s a generational tradition. For many parishes, it’s a rite of spring, summer or fall. For Catholics everywhere, it’s a chance to reconnect with old friends, make new ones, eat great food and maybe send Father swimming in a giant dunk tank. It’s parish festival season again.

Every year, The Michigan Catholic provides our readers with this handy list of family-friendly festivals throughout the summer in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Many of these festivals are advertised throughout this section with more details on attractions and events. To advertise your parish festival in an upcoming edition, contact Kelly Villarreal at (313) 596-7115 or [email protected]
