OLG School Carnival

The 29th Annual OLG Carnival is on Friday, April 28th from 5:30 - 8:30 PM.  We have a lot of fun games in store, food, wonderful baskets and raffle prizes, a DJ and more!  We’d love for parishioners to join in on the fun!  They too can enter to win prizes.

Why Carnival?

This annual tradition brings the Our Lady of Grace School and Parish community together on campus for a night of games, food, fun, prizes, raffle winners & more. At OLG, we proudly & faithfully raise money for important causes throughout the year.  Carnival is important for our school because this event raises funds that directly impact the students and staff at OLG. This year, funds raised at Carnival will go to the Design for Learning Initiative to help improve classroom design, layouts and the overall learning environment at Our Lady of Grace.

Most games award 1-2 points to the winner.  Points can be used at Redemption to buy prizes.  Note:  games that offer a prize at the game location do not award points in addition to the prize.

Ticket Cards & Purchasing Details

Each ticket card is worth 10 tickets and costs $10.  Ticket cards can be used to play games, purchase food & beverages, and enter to win basket prizes. The ticket card comes with a lanyard worn that can be worn around the neck.  
You can purchase ticket cards three ways:

  1. Pre-order to avoid long lines at Carnival using the attached order form and envelope. We will fill the order & return to your student the next day.
  2. Ticket cards can be purchased Wedenesday, Thursday & Friday the week of Carnival during school lunch.

When planning how many ticket cards to purchase, note games are generally 1-2 tickets each to play.  Food and beverages range from 2-6 tickets.
