All About WestFest

WestFest is Fun!

WestFestFood

Imagine a fun filled Fall weekend in September that brings together family and friends from Holy Rosary Parish, an event put on by the school and the Parish that’s safe and tons of fun for all ages. You’ll find rides, kids games, an entertainment stage, specialty food booths, BINGO, a used book sale, a raffle, and much more right here in the Holy Rosary School grounds.

WestFest is Community!

WestFest has become our community’s Fall Family Festival. In it, we celebrate the culmination of a summer well spent as well as the beginning of an exciting new school year!

Best of all, WestFest is community. It is a festival run purely by parish volunteers. It embodies everything that our community is all about. We show our children what can be accomplished by working together. Without the sheer dedication and hard work of parishioners, parents, children, friends and family, there can be no WestFest!

WestFest is Tradition!

Delicious food at WestFest

As a West Seattle tradition, WestFest can’t happen without involved parents, teachers, and parishioners! Please consider helping by working a shift or two—it’s a lot of fun and a great way to meet neighbors and friends. This year’s WestFest Communications Chair, Kara Kelm will work with you to find just the right volunteer opportunity. Above all, we hope you’ll spend time at WestFest this Fall—you won’t want to miss it!
