The Best of the Tradition With a Heart for Evangelism and Discipleship

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 8, 2016, First Lutheran hosted its 6th annual Oktoberfest. It was our best turnout ever, with over 400 coming out to eat, drink, listen and play. The Houston Saengerbund joined us again this year as well as other great musical acts. 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 in 2017!

​In case you're looking ahead to next year, we always have:

  • Bounce Houses
  • ​Face Painting
  • Princess Station
  • Carnival Games and Prizes
  • Costume Parade
  • ​Arts and Crafts

For adults, we'll have:

  • ​​German Food and Drink (Beer)
  • Architectural Tours of our Historic Church
  • Music and Entertainment
  • Raffle
  • Bake Sale
