Fabulously Fun Food Fair Fundraiser

Not a one-time event, the Food Fair is many events throughout the year. Members organize a meal based on a theme or activity and the seats are purchased by other members for a set price with the proceeds benefiting the church.

Begun in 1999, typically we have 40-50 events each year held indoors and out, some family-friendly and some geared for adults. You might spend a day on a farm or eat an elegant meal high above the Des Moines skyline; take your family to a backyard movie night or try your hand at being artsy. The Food Fair also features a silent auction of food items ready to take home or be delivered at a later date. There’s a lot of yum and fun to go around!

Food Fair Summer Event Update

Some spaces are available for the ten in person events offered in July and August. If an event you’d like to attend is sold out, add your name to the waitlist as some guests always cancel.

To purchase a space or put your name on the waitlist, email Elaine Imlau at foodfair@ucdsm.org and pay for your event via PushPay or send a check to the church designated “Food Fair (event name).”
