St. John The Baptist Church


St. John the Baptist Catholic School will host its annual Winterfest  on March 1st – 3rd 2019!

      The Winter Festival started in 1974 and has grown in making St. John into a community that comes together to enjoy the camaraderie of friends, family, and neighbors. The festival is a time for the Whiting/Robertsdale community to gather and reconnect with each other.   This year’s theme, “Family Game Weekend,” was decided to help our community “unplug” from electronic devices and enjoy time with friends and family on March 1, 2, and 3.

      The lower level of the school will be transformed into your favorite board games. You may want to “Pass Go” and collect a “get out of jail free card” in our jail style beer garden. Head through the “Gumdrop Forest” (Panel Room) to enjoy pizza, nachos, beef sandwiches, and sweet treats from our dessert bar and homemade bake sale table.

      The gymnasium will transform into the Children’s GIANT game room which will have games for all ages to enjoy and win prizes. Let’s not forget about the teens! Our Teen Room will have a coffee shop and dance room vibe.

      On Saturday afternoon, our seniors will have the enjoyment of playing Bingo and listening to the Merry Notes play some of their best polkas! Games of Chance will be offered throughout the weekend. 

      We conclude our festival on Sunday, March 3rd with a traditional Slovak Dinner and Grand Prize Raffle drawing. This year, there are two first place prizes of $5,000 each. Tickets are still available.  

        We welcome everyone the Weekend of March 1, 2, & 3. 
        Please reach out to the School Office with questions, 219-659-3042
