Kesterfest is an annual event that takes place on campus and is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the school.  It is assembled with the help of loyal and tireless parents looking for the best interest of the school and it's students. 

With the funds from past festivals we have been able to increase the amount of Physical Education, Art, and Music from previous years to our 1,000+ students and we hope to not only continue, but enhance our program!


We have a great lineup for our 2017 main stage performances!
