Telethon Donation

Saint Joseph’s Summer Festival is affectionately billed as the biggest backyard picnic in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Every year during the last full weekend in July, it lives up to the billing, as thousands of people return year after year.

The Festival, which is sponsored by Saint Joseph’s Auxiliary, also plays host to WNEP-TV’s Telethon on Friday and Saturday evenings. The excitement at the Festival and Telethon come to a fever pitch on Friday or Saturday evening, as Joe Snedeker completes his “Go Joe” bike ride for Saint Joseph’s by arriving at the Festival grounds.
