The St. Joseph Church’s annual festival, a Carpinteria favorite, hits town July 8, with favorite foods, rides and drinks open on that Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

The festival will run July 8, 5 p.m. – 11 p.m.; July 9, noon – 11 pm.; and July 10, noon – 9 p.m. Parking and admission are free. 

The festival will have its usual food staples, including BBQ tri-tip, hot dogs, tacos, cotton candy, strawberry short cake, Horchata and more. A beer garden offers a festival treat for those 21+, and the festival’s raffle drawing will be held Sunday at 8 p.m., for a chance to win $3,000 and other cash prizes. Entertainment is offered in both English and Spanish. 

“The festival is the main fundraiser for St. Joseph Church; it provides funds for the many ministries which meet the spiritual needs of the St. Joseph community throughout the year,” the church said in a release. 

St. Joseph Church is located at 1532 Linden Ave.
