Bless Fest returns for second year of spring family fun this weekend

MADISON – After a successful event in 2023, Bless Fest at Most Merciful Jesus Catholic Parish is returning for a second year with more vendors, activities, and fun on Saturday, May and Sunday, May 5.

Last year featured eighteen different vendors selling a variety of artisan goods along with games for the kids, food in the form of bratwurst, hamburgers, hot dogs, and ribs, an auction, and a raffle. This year, event organizers have plans to build on the success of their inaugural year that was not dampened by rainy weather.

“In spite of bad weather on Sunday last year, all the vendors were interested in returning for the next Fest,” said Bless Fest Committee Lead, Pat Chomskis.

Another committee member, Nancy Suckow, likewise commented, “We were thrilled with the participation from vendors & volunteers, as well as our parishioners and residents from nearby neighborhoods that attended the fest. Over the course of 2 days, we had approximately 400 attendees. We definitely met our goal and exceeded our expectations.”

This year’s fest will again feature artisan vendors, food, games, a silent and ticket auction, and a raffle. The festival benefits the parish and its plans to build permanent facilities to meet the needs of the growing Madison community.
Bless Fest will take place on Saturday May 4 and Sunday May 5 from 9:30am to 4pm. Admission is $5 per family and raffle tickets start at $5 to be entered for the grand prizes of $3,000, $1,000, and $500 cash prizes.
