The Kingwood Oktoberfest
The German tradition of Oktoberfest is coming to Kingwood! Holy Comforter Lutheran Church is proudly sponsoring The Kingwood Octoberfest this October, featuring authentic German food, polka music, games and beer. This first annual event on October 22, 2016 will highlight German heritage and be a great celebration for all of Kingwood to enjoy.
The ?guten Zeiten? (good times) will include music from The Texas Sound Check Band, a staple in the Texas Polka community for more than four decades. The band plays festivals around the state and most recently took part in the National Polka Festival in Ennis, Texas.
The Kingwood Oktoberfest will have local flavors as well, with both German food by Kingwood?s own Chef David Welch and brews on tap from Kingwood?s own Back Pew Brewery. Chef Welch, who is the owner of FireCraft BBQ & has been executive chef at several Kingwood restaurants including Raffas, will bring his own unique flare to authentic German cuisine. Plates, which will cost $15, will include sausage, pork schnitzel, sauerkraut, German potato salad and other wonderful German food. There will also be hot dogs, pretzels, chips, soda, water and of course, beer!
Back Pew Brewery and brewmaster Bobby Harl will provide their unique take on craft brewing. Several of Back Pew?s most popular brews will be on tap for people to enjoy. Back Pew Brewing opened this year in Kingwood and ?passionately brews their beers with creative characters and daring twists.? Their beer can be found in several Kingwood restaurants and bars and can be found at The Kingwood Oktoberfest.
The Kingwood Oktoberfest, sponsored by Holy Comforter Lutheran Church, will also feature booths and demonstrations for the whole family to enjoy and learn about German heritage. There will also be children?s games, a video arcade truck and much more. For those that want to shop, the Oktoberfest Gift Shop and Fair Trade Market will be open during the entire festival. Fair trade is a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability.
The Kingwood Oktoberfest will be from Noon to 5 p.m., October 22, 2016 at Holy Comforter Lutheran Church, located at 1901 Woodland Hills Drive. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 dollar for children under 18. Proceeds will help support church ministries both at Holy Comforter Lutheran Church and beyond, including the many outreach programs that they serve throughout the world such as Water to Thrive, which builds wells for clean, safe water in rural Africa.
So break out your Lederhosen and join us for the Kingwood Oktoberfest! Prost!
