Fall Bazaar

Join us for all the Fun! Sunday, October 8, 2023


For information on the 2023 Fall Bazaar see below:

Our annual bazaar is held every year on the second Sunday in October. It is one of the best festivals in Houston. There is an endless list of fun activities for the whole family, which include: food booths, games & rides for all ages, merchandise mart, silent and big board auctions, raffle, and bingo. Volunteers are always needed. The bazaar is a great way to build community in our parish while raising much needed funds for the needy.

  • Booth Sponsors: Thank you to all of our Bazaar Sponsors. To help defray our expenses we highly rely on sponsorship, both parishioners and corporate. If you would like to sponsor a booth, please contact Richard Fairly, 281.497.1555. To see this year’s sponsors and what is still available to underwrite click here

  • Booth Tickets and Wristbands: We do not charge for admission to our bazaar, however you do need to purchase booth tickets. Booth Tickets are $1.00 ea. and they are needed to purchase food, beverage, play kids games, bingo, rides, and more (booth tickets are not good at Private Vendors, Joseph Coast Christmas Shop, Raffle and Auction). Wristbands are $25 ea. and are good only for unlimited rides and inflatables. Tickets and wristbands are available the day of the bazaar at all tickets booths; however, for your convenience and to avoid lines, you may pre-purchase your booth tickets and wristbands through October 5.
