Oktoberfest at First Lutheran would not be possible without several great community members who sponsor the event. Thanks to all who have helped with Oktoberfest so far this year! 

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, First Lutheran will host its 7th annual Oktoberfest. Last year was our best turnout ever, with over 400 coming out to eat, drink, listen and play. The Houston Saengerbund will join us again this year as well to offer an unmistakable German sound and look! With a special focus on being child friendly and affordable for families, its a great way to spend a Saturday in October. Check us out on October 28! The cost will be $10 for adults and $5 for children. That includes admission, delicious food from the German food truck Fleischwagon, delicious beer from Under the Radar, games and more. 


​For the little ones, we will have:

  • Kid-friendly Food and Drink (locally crafted root beer!)
  • Bounce Houses
  • ​Face Painting
  • Princess Station
  • Carnival Games and Prizes
  • Costume Parade
  • ​Arts and Crafts


For adults, we'll have:

  • Architectural Tours of our Historic Church
  • Music and Entertainment
