It is always such a great feeling when you know you’ve done something nice for someone else. It’s also a great feeling when you get that special buy and the just-right price. St. Paul’s Angelfest is the church’s annual fundraiser and money raised during the fair goes towards worthwhile community events and activities – the nice feeling. It is also brimming with amazing vendors tables, boutique rooms, and delicious food – the special feeling.
The main attraction of Angelfest – and biggest source of fundraising – is the shopping. But what sets the shopping apart from the rest is the innevative concept that the festival incorporates. At Angelfest the concept is boutique. Therefore, every room inhabits a certain theme that guides the shopping experience. So the Children’s Room is a theme in which there are toys and kids clothing while the Ladies Room is all gently used ladies clothing. The book nook is… well, a book sale. The home décor boutique is exactly that, while the Hugh Furniture Tent is a massive selection of all varieties of furniture. The kitchen pantry is another great permutation of Angelfest, serving cooking wares as well as delicious foods, including the ever popular soup-to-go.
Much goes into Angelfest to keep the spirit one of mirth and merriment. There is plenty in the way of live music and the church even hosts a full course lunch, complete with salads, sandwiches, and desserts. For the kids, there are various activities, chief among them the decked out Santa’s Workshop. A special appearance by the jolly man is certain to happen! There are great prizes to be won as well. A quilt raffle, a 50/50 raffle, and a silent auction all mean chances to snag great gifts and prizes. Keep in mind too, Angelfest is only one day long and lines form early and doors close early – best to be on time for opening to beat the rush and enjoy everything to its fullest.
Admission price is moderate and parking is free.
