Hot Topics


Many of our festival dining and gaming locations are accessible to guests with physical limitations. Our campus is aging, but we make every attempt to reasonably accommodate our guests. Guests in wheelchairs are invited to use the lift on the west stairs leading down to our indoor Dining Room.


It can be challenging enough to navigate our 80+ year old campus. With our vast array of Festival offerings, it’s even tougher.  We’ve also made some changes this year, so you’ll want to download our handy map of the Festival grounds.


We are continuing to accept credit cards, Apple Pay and Android Pay at most of our food and beverage locations, as well as at the Ride Ticket booth. We’re also adding additional new technology to greatly improve the guest experience!


In addition to private restrooms in the Casino, and multi-stall restrooms in the Dining Room, we offer a clean, well-lit, air-conditioned restroom trailer at the west end of property on Biltmore Avenue. We also have a Family Restroom in the Dining Room.

The Festival Trinity

The Festival Trinity symbolizes the mission of this ministry – the famous food we’ve served since 1937, the variety of fun games and activities we deliver, and providing something the whole family can enjoy together. 

Food.  Family.  Fun.

About the Parish and Festival

As one of the oldest festivals in the state of Indiana – founded in 1937, the same year as the Parish – the St. Christopher Summer Festival has held it’s 3-day event every year with the exception of 1942, when the United States entered World War II, and in 2020, 2021, and 2022 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic and major construction on the church campus.

The Festival has grown to be one of the largest events in Speedway, after the many fantastic events at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We’re proud to be neighbors to the the famous yard of bricks.

Over the years, the event has become known as “The Festival That’s Tops in Food.” Browse our website, visit us on Facebook, and plan to join us in July. You’ll quickly learn why we’ve earned that title!

Food. Family. Fun.
