BenFest: Ways to Support

The Chicago Tribune named BenFest "one of the Best Family Fests"! 

BenFest is a 3 day community event held in the courtyard and surrounding streets of St. Benedict Parish and School.  The event offers great exposure to residents of North Center, Roscoe Village and Lincoln Square.  When an entire square block is devoted to serving our neighborhood, there is always something that needs tending to, so we thank you for your consideration in supporting BenFest.  If you should have any questions, or you’re interested in being a part of this 3 day event, please contact Kelly Colpoys at kelly.colpoys@gmail.com.  Please click here for details on attendee demographics.
