Annual Sausage Fest
Sausage Fest is the primary fundraising event for Christ the King School and has been an annual community event for 35 years! With 25,000-30,000 people attending, it is also the Tri-Cities' third largest event. In fact, Sausage Fest provides our school with 10% of its operating budget. It builds community, helps keep our school affordable, and generates a lot of family fun for the best entertainment value around.
Admission to Sausage Fest is free and includes 26 games for kids of all ages with great prizes, 12 food booths with over 30 different foods, indoor and outdoor Biergartens with live entertainment, Arts & Crafts, Bingo, Granny's Attic, a Farmer's Market, plus middle and high school dances. Food and game prices have remained low for many years in order to provide an inexpensive, enjoyable time for families in our community.
On the main outdoor stage, Sausage Fest also provides the largest showcase for our local performing talent with a wide variety of entertainment that can be enjoyed by Fest-goers of all ages throughout the weekend. The festivities always run on the third full weekend of September, beginning on Friday from 5:00p.m to midnight and continuing on Saturday from 11:00a.m. to midnight.
It takes more than 2000 volunteers for a successful Sausage Fest! We are parents, parishioners, students, alumni, and friends. When Sausage Fest began in 1977, only a couple dozen volunteers were required to put on the Fest; now, Sausage Fest has over 2,000 volunteers working before, during, and after the event, plus another 245 volunteers working in leadership positions for the many booths and activities.
Sausage Fest is a proud tradition at Christ the King. But it doesn't happen without your support. We need your commitment to help with powering our booths. Please complete a Worker Signup form and turn it into the school office, sign up using our online registration form, or just call us or email us about working a shift. You will have fun serving the community while helping our school raise funds! Most of all, thank you for being a faithful supporter of Sausage Fest!
