Oktoberfest Celebrates 26 Years


St. Johns Church in Milford hosted their annual 26th Oktoberfest on September 23 and 24. The festivities kicked off on Friday evening with live music from local favorites The Funsters and continued into Saturday, celebrating European cultures through live entertainment, food and fun. On Saturday night Glass Onion performed as traditional German entrees, along with Italian, Hispanic, Polish, and Filipino dishes.

The Oktoberfest celebrations in Milford began in 1990 by a German man named Karl Thomas and wife Renate as a way to raise money for St. Johns Church. Revenue made from the first year went to put a new roof on the church.
