All About Mercy-Fest

MercyFest is an annual community celebration hosted by Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Aurora. MercyFest is made possible with the generous support of business sponsors and through the hard work of many, many volunteers.

Entering its 15th year, the Fest is attended by thousands of patrons who are made aware of our sponsors during the course of the 4 day weekend. Activities include the 5K Run/Walk, popular entertainment, carnival rides and games, children’s activities, silent auction, business expo, beer garden, great food, fun and much, much more!

Funds raised through the weekend of events, including those from the MercyFest Cash Raffle, help maintain our Parish Life Center and various programs that support the community at large. Some of these programs include an Elizabeth Ministry for mothers in need, a St. Vincent de Paul program which supplies food stuffs and clothing to those in need, and Bridge Communities, which helps homeless families get the necessary support for a fresh start.

MercyFest continues to be one of the largest festivals held in Aurora, drawing thousands of patrons and, as always, with the help of sponsors, is free to the public.
