“There’s no better way to kick off the fall season than with music, dancing and delicious German food, enjoyed in the company of friends and family,” says Jeannine Skarbek-Kubas, event organizer. “We invite everyone in the community to come out and join in on the fun and fellowship. This event is not just for St. Mary parishioners.”
Now in its 4th year, Saint Mary Oktoberfest is the parish’s flagship community and fundraising event. Roughly 600 people attend the fest each year. A portion of proceeds will be donated to FISH, a local, community-based “helping hand” available to persons in situations of need.
