Saint Rocco Festival The planning and pre-work for this summer's August Saint Rocco Festival is already underway. There may be snow on the ground right now, but a lot of the work by the Volunteer Steering Committee must take place now and we look forward to, and prepare 40th Annual Feast of St. Rocco and the future of the festival. This wonderful event will have had a long and glorious run and with the 40th Festival, we will conclude its present format. The nature of events and volunteerism have changed over the years and we must positively cooperate with the changes. We are looking forward to making this final festival one which will carry with it the traditions food, fun, family, friends and Faith!

The festival is a time for families, friends, and neighbors to gather and enjoy good Italian food and entertainment in a total family-friendly atmosphere.
