Slovak Festival


Our Slovak Festival is back!!! Plans are underway to celebrate more than ever at our upcoming Slovak Festival. Mark your calendars and save the dates for the best Festival in town:

Complete details on our Slovak Festival:


VOLUNTEERS are needed! The Festival is the largest fundraiser for our parish.  It is time to call on all those kind souls who are able to give some time on one day (or two or three days) of the festival.  The jobs vary, but the reward is constant – A great time while helping Saints Cyril & Methodius Parish. Review the volunteer descriptions and consider helping in one or more of the areas.  If something strikes your fancy, volunteer and give it a try!

BAKE SALE: Professional, amateur and first-time bakers are needed to make this year’s Bake Sale a success.  Look through those tried-and-true family recipes or explore something new … start planning today for what you can bake and donate to our August 13 – 15 Festival Bake Sale. 

You may start dropping off your goodies in the Fr. Mikus Hall on Friday, August 13, after the 6:00AM Holy Mass.  Because of allergies, we request that items with nuts be labeled, “contains nuts” and if you can, it won’t hurt to say “no nuts” if that is the case.  Thank you in advance for your help and generosity.  The Confirmation class will be volunteering at the Bake Sale so be sure to stop by, say hello and sample a goodie prepared by a fellow parishioner.  Any questions, please contact Carroll or Paul Schuller, (586) 254-9212.

TALENT SHOW: Whether you are a musician, an actor, a poet, a singer, a dancer, a magician or any other variety of talented individual, we want YOU to showcase your talents to perform in this year’s Talent Show! Start practicing now.  There is plenty of time to brush up on your talents!  Festival Performance Date: Friday, August 13, starting at 6:00PM under the Big Tent! Questions or to sign up for the Talent Show, please contact: Denis Duggan,  (248) 240-8391 or email:

TOYS FOR KIDS TENT: Donations are needed for the Kids Carnival Games Tent.  Please bring new clean toys to the church and place them in the marked bin in the vestibule.  Items should be priced at $1-$5 each.  Anything from the games, toys, or crafts section will do! 

VENDORS: Space is being reserved for Vendors who would like to offer their goods at the Parish Slovak Festival.  As a way to increase the space in the Gallery outside the Parish Hall, a very limited number of vendors will be allowed inside.  However, we are also reserving space for vendors outdoors.

Inside space is $75 for Saturday and Sunday, and includes an 8’ table and two chairs. 

Outside space is 10’ x 10’ for $50 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You will need to bring your own canopy.   A table and two chairs will be provided, if needed.

Deadline & payment due for all vendors: August 1. Please make checks payable to Ss. Cyril & Methodius Parish, and  include “Festival Vendor” on the Memo line.
