Join Saint Therese for their Exciting 24th Annual Carnival!

Join Saint Therese for their Exciting 24th Annual Carnival!

Since 1995, St. Therese kicks-off their annual summer event by putting on one of the greatest carnivals found in North Jersey with major fun for the whole family.

This spectacular event attracts over 7,000 people with entertainment for all ages including carnival rides, games, food, events, demonstrations, bands, and family-friendly entertainment. This excellent four-day family friendly event gets bigger and better every year and is sure to pass the entire family's expectations. 

According to Michael Calabrese, Carnival Committee Chairman of St. Therese. “This event continues to be a major fundraiser for the Parish with this year’s funds helping to replace the Organ that is over 40 years old. The Organ upgrade would not be possible without the people that attend, our sponsors, and to the over 300 people that donate their time to help run this event.”
