"St. Benedict's Oktoberfest & Carnival" A celebration of community in the tradition of St. Ben's German Roots! True to the customs of the Bavarian festival, St. Benedict’s Oktoberfest promises entertainment for the whole family, with music, food, beverages, carnival rides and games! Cheerful toasts of “zum wohl” and shouts of “prost!” Will resonate through the parish courtyard once more as we celebrate our German roots with the 55th annual Oktoberfest October 1st through 3rd. Proceeds from the festival are utilized to benefit local outreach, programming, and fund church operations, restoration and other parish initiatives. There is no admission fee, but tickets for food, drink, and rides can be purchased at the event.
