Photos of volunteer "fun" before, during and after the Fiesta
Want to have some fun?
At the heart of Fiesta Mexicana is the importance of volunteerism. We understand one of the many reasons Fiesta continues to thrive is that our festival is woven into the fabric of our community, steeped in the culture of our families, our church and school. Fiesta volunteers range from the person down the block, employees of local businesses, social service organizations, surrounding churches, to individuals from all over the country coming back every year to help.
While Fiesta Mexicana has evolved into one of the midwest’s premier and long standing festivals with an economic impact not only for the city, it is Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish's main fundraiser for Holy Family School. We can never express our gratitude enough to all the elders that helped create our Fiesta and tend to its continuance throughout the generations. Perhaps one way we can make a small difference is by continuing to encourage volunteerism from our youth, those that attend our church and school and from people all over the Topeka community.
Please consider helping. We have pre-Fiesta opportunities in preparing tamales, spicing m meat, preparing the grounds and kitchen. We are always seeking volunteers in a number of areas during the week of the Fiesta, especially assisting in the kitchen as well as post-Fiesta with clean up and taking down all of the stands.
