Wednesday, June 9th – Saturday, June 12th.

The SOCIALLY DISTANCED carnival is coming to town, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival June 9th through the 12th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. There will be games, rides and great food that always accompanies this much anticipated carnival!

The venue will open nightly at 6pm and features a midway with games of skill, chance (NOTE: must be 18 years or older to play games of chance), rides for young and old. HAND SANITIZING stations will be provided through out the venue and MASKS will be required based on current state guidance.

Foods available will include clam chowder, pasta fagioli, eggplant parmesan, hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, cheese steak, french fries, fried dough, sausage and peppers, meatballs, clams on the half shell (while supplies last) and kielbasa & kraut (starting Thursday until supplies last). There will be plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth, too, with delights such as ice cream, carrot cake and cannoli to be had. Refreshments will also be available in the form of coffee, iced tea, soda, water, beer, lemonade and hot chocolate.

Last but not least, there will be a basket raffle and plenty of games and rides for kids of all ages, with a $25 wristband for rides available every night where one can ride as long as they want to.

So if you’re looking to get out of the house June 9th – 12th, look no further than the Church of the Resurrection Carnival. There’s plenty of free parking and admission is free too!

The carnival chairman said that we will do whatever the state requires to safely hold this event. We have reduced the menu to assist with social distancing in the food tent.

Your help and support are always much appreciated.

Our annual Parish Carnival will be held from Wednesday, June 9 – Saturday, June 12th. The carnival opens nightly at 6:00pm. The carnival serves two main purposes for our parish. It serves as a fundraiser to provide the necessary resources for parish ministries and organizations and, just as importantly, the carnival serves as a wonderful opportunity to build friendships and a great community spirit.
