Don’t Miss The 49 th Annual St. Benedict OktoberFest. Free Admission!



While nobody looks forward to the onset of shorter daylight hours and cooler temperatures, the buzz is starting to swirl and people are getting excited because it’s time to dust off the alpine hats, dirndls and lederhosen!

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 49th Annual St. Benedict OktoberFest, held from October 3rd through October 5th. As always admission is FREE!

Veteran attendees know that St. Benedict’s OktoberFest is more than the standard German-themed event. Our family-friendly celebratory reunion features exciting components for all ages, such as a whole section of carnival midway rides, activities and games, our special “520” Pool raffle, the pumpkin patch and much more.

Friday, October 3rd 3pm - 10pm
Saturday, October 4th 1pm - 10pm
Sunday, October 5th 1pm - 9pm
