Refugee Harvest Festival

Cornerstone joyfully welcomed a several hundred refugees and volunteers from throughout St. Louis for a beautiful day of Fall retreat.

Party-goers enjoyed free pony rides, face painting, hay rides around the pond and a pumpkin patch to select from in addition to our normal line up of activities. Fishing, soccer, volleyball, cornhole toss, horseshoes, croquet, and other lawn games took place on the north side of the farm, while barn tours, live music, a food truck plus a wide-array of ethnic foods from city restaurants filled the south side of the property with lots of laughter.

This year, festival participants went home with bags full of winter coats and clothing as well as pumpkins. It was a glorious day!

This is annual event and relies upon the generosity of donors and volunteers. See the calendar for this year’s Festival.
