Sixth Annual St. Francis Fall Festival was a huge success

DENVILLE — The Sixth Annual St. Francis Fall Festival, a one-day charity event to benefit the St. Francis Residential Community.  St. Francis Residential Community is a ministry of the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother that provides unique and affordable options for senior living in a dignified and beautiful setting was held on Sunday, October 11.

The festival is a family oriented and traditional day of fall fun.  For many years, Denville hosted the former St. Clare’s Harvest Festival at the same location – a former working farm with barns and fields providing a picturesque backdrop. Since the Harvest Festival event ended the demand for a fun, family oriented autumn event has been met.

Denville is a lovely old-fashioned town located in the center of affluent Morris County.  The town is filled with quaint shops, cozy restaurants, and spas.  The event draws people directly from three bordering counties as well as New York and Pennsylvania.  The event was an enjoyable high quality experience for the whole family, including German Food, Beer Garden, 50/50 tickets, rides, games and many other crowd drawing events.
