Harvest Hoedown - Fall Fundraiser

Our Fall Fundraiser, which helps kick-off our Annual Giving Campaign each year, supports our school’s academic and enrichment programs, tuition assistance, professional development, technology needs and necessary building maintenance. 
Without the funds raised by this special event, St. Mary’s would either have to curtail or eliminate these valuable studies possibly raise tuition substantially and decrease the amount of tuition assistance provided each year to families in need.


The Hoedown rallies and unifies the St. Mary’s community around a common cause: to raise money to support our mission to challenge our diverse student body, to grow morally, academically and socially into passionate, confident and Christ-centered leaders of the 21st century. And, it’s a great afternoon of fun! 

The Harvest Hoedown is the vehicle by which the money is raised. We celebrate its 11th anniversary this year. This fair-like event is held between 4th & 5th Streets on Locust Street running from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. 


Live Music and Square Dancing, Delicious Food, Hayrides, Games, Crafts, Spooky Bootique - Face Painting, Crazy Hair, One of a Kind Cardboard Maze, Moonbounce, Petting Zoo, Photo Booth, Wonderful Prizes, Scarecrow Decorating Contest, Royal Student Court and other festive activities.
