About SerbFest 2022

We look forward to your support and welcoming you back to SerbFest 2022 at St. Sava Church in Merrillville, Indiana!

We will be celebrating another successful and safe annual festival July 29, 30, and 31! We’ve set the dates for SerbFest 2022, started our raffle sales, and we will continue monitoring health considerations as we work with local guidelines.

Your favorite summer flavors from our grills and bakery will be available once again. We look forward to continuing the traditions of incredible music, dancing, exhibits, and access to our facilities as we have in previous years.

We will work to align these experiences with best practices for health and safety based upon local health department guidelines.

Raffle tickets with the $15,000 grand prize and thousands of dollars in other prizes are available for sale. Drawing for the raffle will be Sunday, July 31, 2022.

There are also two chances for early birds with raffle tickets to win $1,000 on May 29 and $1,000 on July 10, so get your tickets early because early bird winners are still eligible for the other prizes the last day of SerbFest 2022!
