Since 1979 the second full weekend of November, a festival is held as a fundraiser for various building and equipment projects around the monastery. In recent years some of those proceeds have also gone to projects of their outreach to a school and orphanage in Mexico.
Vendors from many places, such as Arizona, California, New Mexico, Colorado and Mexico, convene for the two day event.  And various entertainers perform on the stage as well in the chapel.

A selection of food venues dot the area are provided by the monastery. While positions of leadership for all the committees are usually taken by residential and local oblates, a large number of volunteers come from all around to make it a successful event.
