The festival is one of the oldest festivals in the state of Indiana and one of the largest events in Speedway each year. We call ourselves the festival that’s “Tops in Food” because we pride ourselves in our famous hand-breaded cod sandwich, breaded tenderloin sandwich, savory grill items, and specialty desserts. Many of our desserts, like our pistachio cake, are secret parish recipes handed down from parishioners. We support all first responders and provide those who attend in uniform with a free meal.

Our festival also provides patrons with options to make their experience more enjoyable: 

  • Credit cards, Apple Pay and Android Pay are accepted for food and ride ticket purchases. 
  • A new app to help provide details about the festival, schedule and food. Coupons and push alerts will be sent out as well. You can find it in the App Store and Google Play.
  • Gray Brothers pies. 
  • A new family restroom is available in the Dining Room.
  • Disability accommodations: many of our festival dining and gaming locations are accessible to guests with various disabilities. Our campus is aging, but we make every attempt to reasonably accommodate our guests. 
  • In addition to private restrooms in the Casino, and multi-stall restrooms in the Dining Room, we now offer a clean, well-lit, air-conditioned restroom trailer at the west end of property. 
  • Huesman Amusements Company is providing carnival games for kids. 

Live performances are scheduled all three nights of the festival.

Mass on the Grass will be held on Saturday at 4 pm on the Northeast Lawn. All are welcome as we celebrate the Eucharist in a casual “come as you are” setting near the intersection of 16th and Lynhurst in Speedway. Several thousand festival goers are in attendance each year.
