The St. James Lutheran 37th Annual Brats and Crafts Festival has been postponed to August 6-8, 2021.

Festival organizers feel that it is in the best interest of all to postpone the festival to 2021.

This has been a difficult decision to make, but the festival organizers at St. James Lutheran feel this is best for the safety of both the festival attendees and church volunteers due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.
