Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale

Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale


September 22-23, 2023

The quilts are the stars of the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale in Goshen,  but the foods are a close second!  Munch on the kettle corn or apple fritters, or sit down for a meal of haystacks or sandwiches.

You can participate in the silent auction or browse tents filled with crafts, housewares, plus homemade pies, breads, cheeses, sausages and other goodies to help raise money for those in need.
