You may also bring fabric to the May Festival to be made at a later date. Please contact the office for details.

What does May Festival support?

*Local Artisans
*Our connections with the Earth
*Building connections in our community
*The ministries of People's Congregational Church (peruse our website to learn more about us)

Our PCC Vision: An inclusive community, celebrating God's unconditional love ...

Our congregation's involvement in justice and outreach within the wider community:
  • We join and support efforts to improve the lives of residents in the local area through Valley Outreach, Community Thread, Connect Center and Homeless Strategy and Advocacy Team (HSAT) of Washington County. We hosted a February 2022 Covid-19 vaccine clinic administered by Washington County Public Health.
  • At People's Park, we maintain a labyrinth and a community garden for community enjoyment. We participate in a major environmental restoration effort with the Washington County Conservation District and Middle St. Croix Watershed, redeveloping two acres as native prairie to attract pollinators, wildlife, native plants and flowers.
  • Our Justice and Outreach Team encourages our members to engage in three focus areas: environmental/climate justice, identity justice (antiracism*, LGBTQ+ inclusion), and economic justice (income, home and food security). In spring 2021, we formed an Antiracism Collective to begin an inaugural year of rigorous antiracism education.
