About Bonifest

Bonifest has become known as the “kick-off to summer” for Edwardsville, IL – one of the fastest growing communities in the St. Louis Metro East.

Bonifest has always been a major community event and significant fundraiser for the St. Boniface Parish, located at the intersection of Vandalia and Buchanan Streets in Edwardsville.

Bonifest 2019 will feature many of its previous activities such as the 20th Annual 5k Run for Bonifest, great food, drink, games, and music. We are also excited about our “Main Stage” venue that will highlight the crowd pleasing music of the bands The Dirty Muggs, Johnny Holzum & Well Hungarians, plus other great music!
