MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Following two years off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the St. Dennis Parish community reunited for the St. Dennis Festival, one of the largest area summer festivals.

During the festival, over 700 community members gathered and took part in an outdoor mass, games and 5K fun run. The event also featured live music and a variety of food options.

The pastor at St. Dennis, Father Randy Timmerman, said the main purpose of the festival is to give thanks.

“There’s such excitement about just coming together as a people, and certainly for myself to see so many as well coming back who claim St. Dennis as home and mother and family if you will, so lots of gratitude on our hearts,” Father Timmerman said.

For over 67 years the St. Dennis community has dedicated the last weekend in July to the celebration, Father Timmerman said.
