A Celebrated New Tradition. Each year on the night before Thanksgiving, the Spartan Smoker seeks to draw hundreds of De Smet Jesuit faithful men back to the Palace on Ballas. Come join alumni, fathers and friends of De Smet Jesuit to kick off the holiday season and enjoy the community of your fellow Spartans.

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Inaugural Spartan Smoker.  Hope to see you all again next year on Wednesday 11/22/23 for our Next Spartan Smoker
