Orland Park holds its 5th annual Orland Community Saint Joseph's Table in March with catering by Joey's Pizzeria and desserts by Warm Belly Bakery of Chicago. Saint Joseph's Table is a beloved Italian-American tradition that Orland observes with a community meal and a food drive.

The Saint Joseph Table tradition is said to date back to the Middle Ages when Sicilians prayed to Saint Joseph for relief from drought and famine.

He is honored with a feast day on March 19.
