HNC Fall & Fiber Festival – 2021

Hundreds of people from the greater Williamsburg area attend our annual Fall Festival.  It is our biggest fundraiser of the year for the charities we support.  Many parish volunteers help make the event a huge success each year.  We are grateful to the many area businesses and individuals who donate in-kind goods and services, silent auction items, and food.


All proceeds of the Fall Festival go directly to local charities.  Since 2002, our grants have totaled over $180,500.00.  The Fiber Fest has earned $7,222.21 (2017-2019) as a stand-alone festival and provided some items for our fall festival silent auction last year.  We are excited to merge the two festivals this year.
