Hours: The festival is being held on Friday August 18th from 6 p.m. to midnight,
              and on Saturday August 19th from 3:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.


  • Location

  • Our festival is held on the St. Mary School parking lot. The address of our school is:
    9 South Jefferson Street
    Alexandria, KY 41001

  • Parking

    Please park in the church parking lot area, using the church driveway to enter and leave. Do NOT use the school parking lot, since this will be used for the festival itself.

    This year there will be a GRAND RAFFLE with $3,100 in total prize money. Each parish family is encouraged to sell 5 raffle tickets. Chance stubs, money and any unsold tickets can be placed in the weekly Sunday collection basket, using the same envelope that the raffle tickets came in. For additional raffle tickets, please call the parish office at (859) 635-4188. The actual raffle drawing will take place on Saturday evening at 10 p.m
