Oktoberfest in Chapel Hill is on Friday, September 27, 2013. You won’t find it anywhere in our town but right here at St. Thomas More Catholic Church.
Oktoberfest is a 16-day celebration in Germany that starts in late September. Our postwar GI’s and early German immigrant families brought the celebration to America. In Germany, millions of people attend. You can avoid the crowds and join us for our Chapel Hill event with the Little German Band playing and dancing. There is food, beer, wine, dancing and live entertainment.
Cost is $25 per adult and includes brats, chicken, sauerkraut, potato salad, pretzel roll, cake and three adult beverages. If you are under 21 or a child, it is just $15 for a lifelong memory of fund and German music.
It’s a kid friendly event as Oktoberfest is a family celebration and festival.
Parish celebrations, festivals, and other community events have brought church members and their community together for many years. It is a time to be thankful for the many blessings we have received and for us to share our faith with our community.
