What is Panacea?
Panacea is a weekend-long carnival event full of fun for the whole family! It is the largest annual fundraiser (this year celebrating our 48th annual event!) held to support Pacelli Catholic Schools where 100% of the proceeds benefit the nearly 800 children we serve each year through our childcare, preschool, and K-12 education. We take pride in our laser focus on academic excellence and strong values for our students so each dollar earned at Panacea goes right back into our classrooms.
When & where is Panacea held?
Panacea 2022 will be held September 9, 10, & 11, 2022 outdoors at Pacelli Catholic High School, 1301 Maria Drive, Stevens Point, WI 54481.
What are the hours of Panacea each day?
Panacea is open from 4PM-11PM Friday, 11AM-11PM Saturday, & 11AM-5PM Sunday.
What activities are available at Panacea?
You won’t want to miss the ever popular A&P Carnival rides and games. But if that’s not your fancy, check out Pacelli’s Famous Friday Night Fish Fry or the Sunday Chicken Dinner catered by Ambrosia’s. Our silent auction, Central Wisconsin’s largest, is open for viewing and online bidding all weekend, starting Friday, September 9 at 4pm. From face painting to the Cherry Tree prize game, there’s loads of fun for the whole family. Shop the Farmer’s Market for tasty treats, baked goods, and farm fresh produce or the Spirit Shop to outfit yourselves with new Pacelli gear.
Don’t forget to try your hand at the Money Tree and Basket Raffle where you can win cash and fabulous prizes! Plus, you could win a NEW 2021 Chevy Blazer 2LT donated by Len Dudas Motors or $20,000 as well as $1,750 in cash prizes, so you’ll need to be sure to get your entries for that and the cash sweepstakes featuring 11 prizes ranging from $100-$1,000 ($500 first prize sponsored by Check’s Muffler Center)!
At the end of the day, grab a slice of Portesi Pizza, a Feltz’s Dairy Store hamburger, a Ski’s Meat Market Panacea brat, some cheese curds, even some ice cream for dessert, head on over to the beverage center and get your world rocked with music by The Allen Brothers on Friday night and Soul Whiskey and The Brady Luke Band on Saturday. Come back Sunday for the Polka Pow Wow featuring Brian Brueggen’s Mississippi Valley Dutchmen & Steve Burclaw’s New Polish Sounds.
