DuBois Center Fall Festival

Fall Fest 2019 Logo

Fall Festival is DuBois Center’s annual friend- and-fundraising event, and is held the first Sunday in October. 2019’s Fall Festival will take place on Sunday, October 6, and is open to the public. For information, check out this flyer or keep reading below.

Attend

Come on out from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and join the fun! You’ll find crafters, live music, an Upscale Resale Shop, plenty of delicious food and more. This is a family-friendly event, so bring the kids! They can enjoy our Kids Korner with lots of crafts and games, or any one of our numerous activities around the grounds. Ride a horse, take a cruise on the pontoon boat or tour DuBois via hay wagon.

We also have a Quilt Drawing – you can fill out your entry forms in advance by printing this form – or you can fill them out at the festival. Entries are $1 a piece or six for $5. This year, there are two unique and beautiful quilts!

Fall Festival is free to enter – parking is free as well. Activities and food are available at an affordable cost. This is a great event for families, church groups and friends. Get out and enjoy a beautiful fall day at DuBois! Find directions to DuBois Center here.

Crafters

Each year, we welcome dozens of crafters to DuBois. Our spaces are currently full, but please contact Susan Fuchs at susankfuchs@gmail.com or click here for an information packet if you’d like to be added to a Wait List. You may also fill out a Crafter Application.

Sweet Treats

Each year, we host a Sweet Shoppe bake sale at Fall Festival. All proceeds of this sale directly benefit the DuBois Center Scholarship Fund, allowing us to provide summer camp scholarship to campers in need. To make sure we have lots of delicious desserts available, we are asking for donations of sweet treats! We’re looking for pies, cookies, cakes, brownies – any delicious delectables will do! If you’re interested in donating a baked good or two, check out this flyer for more information.

We request that all treats be dropped off at DuBois on Saturday, Oct. 5, or by 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6. A few of our volunteers are also able to pick up treats for you! Contact Angie via email at angiezapp1@gmail.com or phone at 618-599-9277 for pick-up details.

Upscale Resale Shoppe & Silent Auction

As another part of our fundraiser, we host an Upscale Resale Shop & Silent Auction. All proceeds benefit DuBois, so we are asking for your help – do you have any new (or like-new), vintage or classic items to donate to the cause? For the Resale Shoppe, we’re looking for items with $5 + in sales value – think purses, fashion accessories, decor and more. For the Silent Auction, we need items or baskets with a $25 + value. Check out this flyer for more details and ideas!

Please bring all items to DuBois Center on Saturday, Oct. 5 or by 10 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6. If you need an item picked up, please contact Nicole via email at naviserouse@yahoo.com or phone at 618-540-7438 by Sept. 27.

Volunteer

Fall Festival is not possible without the help of countless volunteers. They help the event run smoothly, and are needed in a variety of areas.

For 2019, we still need volunteers in the following areas:

  • Kids Korner
  • Upscale Resale Shop
  • Cashiers
  • Various Activities
  • And more!

This is a great opportunity for church groups to volunteer together for a service project. Volunteers may also work in shifts should they not be able to attend a full day, or wish to enjoy the festival. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact the DuBois Center office at 618-787-2202 or dcinfo@duboiscenter.org.
