Toronto Mennonite Festival (MCC relief sale at Black Creek Pioneer Village)


Toronto Mennonite Festival celebrates its 50th MCC Relief Sale this September 17 at Black Creek Pioneer Village. Please help us make it another successful year.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Piemaking Bee (400 pies!):  2 – 10 pm at Reesor’s Kitchen, 22 Ringwood Drive, Stouffville.
  • Bake cookies (nut-free only, please) – pack in bags of 6 and bring to the table where they sell breads.
  • TUMC Rosette booth – sign up in the TUMC lobby for a 2-hour shift. Rosettes are deep fried, sugary treats that are eaten alone or topped with ice cream and strawberry sauce. We make them on site and people love them. Ed H. is coordinating the Rosette Booth.
  • Music. Musicians provide background entertainment (the stage is under a tent on the field). Diem L. is coordinating musicians.

Note that volunteers gain free admission and parking, so it really is worth your while.

If you can’t volunteer, attend anyway, and invite your friends to do the same. We buy food; mingle with others from Mennonite churches across GTA; bid on quilts at the auction; enjoy the entertainment and general ambiance of Black Creek Pioneer Village.

For more information, please contact Tobi Thiessen.

The Toronto Mennonite Festival has raised over $1.3 million for Mennonite Central Committee since 1967.
