Friendship FEST and Auction set for May 9-10
Supports adults with developmental disabilities
Picture several big top tents sprawled across a quiet field. The delightful aroma of spicy chicken barbeque, soup, French fries, and ethnic foods emanate from the canvas, teasing your senses and drawing you in. The rapid, repetitive cadence of an auctioneer’s plea breaks through the air as curious guests meander across the byways of the festival scene.
Welcome to Friendship Community’s 21st Annual FEST & Auction held Friday, May 9, and Saturday, May 10, at the Friendship Community corporate grounds, 1149 E. Oregon Road. Admission is free.
This year’s FEST features some locally well-known guests. Steven Courtney & the Suitcase Musicians will perform at Friendship Community’s Friday night concert beginning at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm will feature their famous Chick Hatch, huge Flemish rabbits and a newly-born lamb. A delicious pancake and sausage breakfast will be served while WJTL’s Kids Cookie Break broadcasts live from this family-fun event.
The large country Auction will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday. Some items for bid include vacation packages worth $1,000, two cars and adventures at many local attractions. Another feature of this event is the Plant Tent. Hundreds of plants and shrubs will be available for purchase beginning on Friday at 3 p.m.
Since beginning 21 years ago, this event attracts over 2,000 guests annually and has become a significant fundraiser for Friendship Community, a Christian ministry cultivating the capabilities of 150 Adults with developmental disabilities in Lancaster and Lebanon counties.
