All the food booths at the Fallasburg Arts Festival are run by area non-profit organizations. They provide amazing food every year for the festival, and the funds they raise go support many causes. 

Lowell Women’s Club

Our menu last year for the Fallasburg Arts Festival included Italian Sausage Hoagie, Pepperoni Pizza Slices, and Pumpkin Pie.

Founded in 1928, the Lowell Women’s Club has been serving the community for 92 years. Today, the organization has approximately 65 members of all ages and walks of life. An integral part of the club’s mission is mentoring students from Lowell High School and providing them scholarships that will assist them in pursuing higher education.

Please like and follow the Lowell Women’s Club Facebook page to be notified of these sales and other opportunities to support this service organization.

Lowell United Methodist Church

Each year the Lowell United Methodist Church is at Fallasburg Arts Festival to serve you Squash Bisque, Wraps, and Walking Tacos! Yum! We use this opportunity to raise funds to support our mission team. The past few years the funds have been utilized to support our sister church in Costa Rica. This year, with the coronavirus, the Lowell United Methodist Missions is asking for donations to support our commitment to the Costa Rican community of Palabra Viva to help complete their new church building.

We would love your support this year with a donation to our efforts in the Costa Rican community. Are you able to give $4, the cost of a Walking Taco? Or $5, the cost of a Squash Bisque?

Please consider making a donation for our next trip, in 2021, to continue our hands-on commitment to Palabra Viva.

Donations can be mailed or dropped off to Lowell UMC, 621 E. Main, Street, Lowell, MI, 49331.

Thank you! We look forward to serving you in 2021.

 

First Congregational Church of Lowell

 

Our menu items for the Fallasburg Arts Festival included BBQ Pulled Pork, Roasted Corn, and Cole Slaw.

 

A little about us: We believe that there are many forms of worship. We draw from many sources to offer a spiritually meaningful experience each Sunday at 10AM both in person and virtually. Worship lasts approximately one hour and features congregational singing, a children's time and activities, a message from our pastor, prayer and service. If you are not sure what you believe....

Join the club! Everybody has doubts. At Lowell's First Congregational, we don't judge or place barriers on participation and we respect wherever you are  spiritually. No church has a monopoly on truth. As a progressive church, our focus is on social justice, protecting the environment, forgiveness, rejecting racism, fighting for the powerless, and embracing diversity. We are an Open and Affirming (ONA) certified church and welcome LGBTQ+ people openly. Our worship services reflect those beliefs. All are welcome so come join us.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church was known for our chili - but with the warm weather over the last few years, we switched over to soft pretzels.

 

We have participated at the festival for over 20 years, using our profits to support many projects at our church. Some of those projects include a new well, tile mosaic artwork, new kitchen appliances, mission trip for members to Haiti, security updates, and a new parking lot. We hope to return to support the festival when it is safe to do so.

Lowell Area Historical Museum

We sell Apple Dumplings at the Fallasburg Art Festival to raise funds for the programs of the Lowell Area Historical Museum.

The Lowell Area Historical Museum educates, enriches, and inspires our community and visitors through the preservation and presentation of Lowell area history. The Museum looks to build bridges to the past for present and future generations. We invite visitors of all ages to discover our river of history through the preservation and presentation of artifacts, oral histories, programs, and exhibits. We provide educational and cultural opportunities so that individuals can draw connections to their past, their community, and their world. The museum and garden at the historic Graham Building offers a unique environment for making history come alive. The Museum also presents history through a series of interpretive boards in Lowell’s historic district and at the Lowell Township Park.

Lowell Rotary Club

We sell Rotary Dogs and use that money for local grants. (What is a Rotary Dog? Polish Sausage with or without Kraut)

Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change. We are united by more than a million people worldwide and together we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. We take action locally and globally. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions. No challenge is too big for us. For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease.

Lowell Area Fire Department

 

The Lowell Area Fire Department starts early in the day to prepare grilled chicken on-site at the Fallasburg Arts Festival each year. This very popular festival meal includes a 1/2 chicken, baked beans, potato salad, roll, and a drink.

LowellArts depends on the revenue from the Fallasburg Arts Festival to fund arts programming throughout the year. With the cancellation of the in-person festival, we are reaching out to our festival supporters to consider making a donation to support LowellArts this year.

Alto Lions Club

The Alto Lions Club has served fish and fries at many of the past Fallasburg Art Festivals. Next year hamburgers will likely be on the menu.

Fallasburg Historical Society

The Fallasburg Historical Society sells cookies on the porch of the pavilion during the Fallasburg Art Festival.

The Fallasburg Historical Society was organized in 1965, originally as the West Central Michigan Historical Society, to collect, preserve, advance, and disseminate the history of this area, and more specifically, Fallasburg Village. These efforts however, began in earnest over 100 years ago by the Vergennes Cooperative Club who nurtured the dream of sharing these remarkable pioneer stories and the village they created for future generations to enjoy and learn from. Fallasburg has had many shepherds since John Wesley Fallas founded her in 1839, all with a common goal: preservation. Today, Fallasburg Village remains a picture postcard of early American life.
