St. Louis Parish Clarksville Picnic Gallery
Submitted by Tracy Mayer

St. Louis Parish Clarksville Picnic Gallery

In its 135th year, and perhaps the oldest of its kind in the state, the Clarksville Picnic is one of the largest parish festivals in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.   And it’s all due to the enthusiasm of the people - both parishioners and friends - who still find it a great gathering time for pleasure, hard work and pride in seeing a grand tradition continue.  It began in the 19th century as a harvest celebration, and now includes a multi-day White Elephant yard sale, concerts, big prize raffles (a $20,000 grand prize drawn at the end of the event as well as a quilt made by our church Quilting Group), a Silent Auction, BINGO, and games such as mini golf, a dunking booth and a moon bounce.

At the heart of the event is an all you can eat fried chicken and ham dinner under “the big tent” that draws thousands.  Traditional fair foods such as burgers, hot dogs, and funnel cake worth standing in line for are also available.
