Annual St. Robert Fair Kicks Off this Weekend

June 1, 2010

On Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6, St. Robert Parish, Shorewood will host its 38th annual St. Robert Fair -- two days of mouth-watering food, toe-tapping music, games, rides and fun for the entire family.

 

This year's Fair celebrates the 98th anniversary of St. Robert Parish and will be held rain or shine on the parking lot behind St. Robert School, 2200 E Capitol Drive. Fair hours are Saturday, June 5 from 12 p.m. until 10 p.m. and Sunday, June 6 from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Weekend highlights include:

 

Delectable food. New this year is the St. Bob-e-Q featuring smoked pulled pork, smoked brisket, cornbread and beans. The St. Bob-e-Q will run Saturday from 12 p.m. until 6 p.m., or while supplies last. Returning on Sunday will be the popular Sunday Chicken Dinner, including a 1/2 chicken, roll, coleslaw and piece of cake. And all weekend long, fair goers can enjoy roasted corn, fresh cream puffs, selections from the Mexican Cantina, Cafe Italia, corn beef and a Guinness at Duffy's Irish Pub, or Cajun-influenced items like seafood kabobs and jumbalya from the Vigil Light Cafe. Of course there will be plenty of lemonade, hot dogs, pop corn, pizza and ice cream on hand too.

 

Music to get you up and moving. This year's Fair will feature an eclectic musical lineup including blues, jazz, honky-tonk, ska, Irish rock and an all-female accordion band. Saturday's schedule includes: The Sidebars (12 p.m. to 2 p.m.); Stockwood (2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.); The Tinhorns (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) and headlined by The Invaders (8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.). On Sunday hear: Fforte Adore (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.); McTavish (1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.); and The Squeezettes from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

 

Entertainment for kids of all ages. From minnow races, dime toss and cross bow games to face painting, the bouncy house and wall climbing the Fair will have it all. And, new this year are the Wii tournament and Cupcake Walk.

 

Shopping and a chance to win amazing prizes. As always, the Fair will offer a household rummage, book sale and Country store featuring a range of crafts by local artists. Fair goers won't want to miss the Raffle in Duffy's Irish Pub and their chance to win a new iPad, a flat screen TV, Brewers/Cubs ticket package, karaoke machine, original artwork, and more!
