Now folks from all over the south end and beyond can enjoy this and more tastes of England for FREE at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Renton, on Saturday, Sept. 13, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Drawing on their Anglican roots, St. Luke’s inaugural English Fete will offer sales of traditional English foods such as Banger’s & Mash and Ploughman’s Lunch, English beers and sweets, classic English carnival games, music and fun for all ages.

All proceeds benefit the operation of St. Luke’s and their many community ministries including, ARISE, an interfaith traveling homeless shelter for men, St. Luke’s Community Garden whose bounty is shared with Renton’s needy and warm-up breakfasts on various weekday mornings.

Admission is free and open to all (Please contact for special accommodations or information).

Pip! Pip! Cheerio! let’s all go to the Fete!
