Harvest Festival

The Harvest Festival is an annual tradition at St. Ursula School and is an event the entire St. Ursula Harvest Festival community looks forward to each year. The Harvest Festival includes fun family games, crafts, delicious food, prize wheels, and much more! All children attend the Harvest Festival during school on the Thursday before the Festival Weekend. They are also encouraged to return on the weekend with their friends and family. 

Please take a moment to read this information sheet on what to expect during the event and where we need your help.

Harvest Festival 2023 is scheduled for Thursday, October 12th (in-school only); Friday, October 13th (5-9 p.m.); and Saturday, October 14th (5-9 p.m.).


Harvest Festival is a great opportunity to jump start your annual service hours. This huge event requires many volunteers and we need your help in order for it to be successful. Service hours are given for help setting up on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, working Thursday during the day, Friday and Saturday evening, Sunday clean-up, and Monday supply pick-up. Please sign up by Sunday, October 1st.

Please be aware that all volunteers must be VIRTUS APPROVED. Training can be completed online at www.virtusonline.org.
