SAP Elementary’s annual fall festival just around the corner

Construction at St. Anthony Park Elementary School has pushed some changes to the annual Fall Festival and Silent Auction, which is organized by the school’s parent-teacher organization, St. Anthony Park School Association (SAPSA).

SAPSA and Langford Rec Center are collaborating to host the festival, which will be held at the school, 2180 Knapp St., from 5 to 8 p.m. Langford will host a community bonfire at the rec center from 8 to 9 p.m., following the festival.

The festival—SAPSA’s largest fundraiser of the year—is being held two weeks earlier than in past years. This year’s event will again host a Pumpkin Run and will also offer a DJ, climbing wall, bounce house, crafts, a bake sale and food trucks. S’mores will be available to purchase during the bonfire.

One big change this year is that the silent auction will now be available both online and in-person during the festival. Participants will be able to preview and bid on items days in advance. Go to to learn more. Online bidding will begin Monday, Oct. 2.

Auction items include items donated by area businesses, including the Guthrie Theater, Minnesota Orchestra and the Minnesota Vikings. If you would like to donate an item to the Silent Auction, contact Julie Salter at

The Fall Festival is open to the community.
