Summer Festival

Every August the communities of Crescent Springs and Villa Hills look forward to the St. Joseph festival. This summer event brings the local communities together with fun and fellowship. Its a social event not to be missed!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated protocols, the 2020 Summer Celebration Festival has been changed.  Please see below for information on the live auction and the big raffle that is still being held but online rather than in-person.  Thanks to our festival committee for their creativity and hard work to make the St. Joseph summer tradition carry on through this difficult time.

Please check the links below to print the flyers for the events if you would like to  help spread the news to your family, friends, and neighbors.  Or read the information below concerning each event.

BID-N-BUY 2020



Previous St. Joseph Summer Celebration festivals offered the Big Ticket Raffle that included prizes of cash, automobiles, and boats.  It has always been an exciting and successful fundraising effort for our Parish.

For 2020, we are offering a smaller priced ticket raffle with more prizes and more opportunities to win.  Raffle tickets will be sold for $25 each and the drawing will be held on Sunday, September 6.  Overall, there will be five (5) winning cash prizes including one overall Grand Prize of $10,000.

How can you help? In lieu of buying your favorite child a Sunday all-day ride ticket, buying tickets for the various game booths, or purchasing food & drink, we are asking each of our supporters to buy the equivalent amount of St. Joe's Dough raffle tickets.  If you would normally spend $75 at the festival, please buy 3 St. Joe's Dough raffle tickets.  If you would normally spend $75 and purchase a Big Raffle ticket, please buy 7 St. Joe's Dough raffle tickets.

This revised raffle offering is a fun and safe way we can all engage our community, and provide the needed financial support for our Parish.  Online tickets can be purchased through our website, Givesmart at:
