We're happy to have you join us for Festival Days. Decades old, the festival has changed greatly throughout the years. Born as Frontier Daze, the event later came to be known as the St. Jean Baptiste Festival (SJB).

This year's festival is proudly co-presented by Functional Therapy Inc.JLS Signs & Decals, and Morinville OK Tire, support for our volunteers from Morinville RV City.
