Kingwood Strong is this year’s theme for Oktoberfest.

In spite of Hurricane Harvey, the German tradition of Oktoberfest is still coming to Kingwood. Holy Comforter Lutheran Church, sponsor of The Kingwood Oktoberfest, is digging deep to provide Kingwood and surrounding communities with some much-needed family entertainment this October.
Oktoberfest will take place Oct. 21 from noon-5 p.m. at the church, 1901 Woodland Hills Dr.
Proceeds from this event will help causes both in Kingwood and around the world, with the majority now going toward Hurricane Harvey relief in the Kingwood area.
The Kingwood Oktoberfest will once again feature the music of the Texas Sound Check Band, formerly the City Polka Boys, who have been a staple in the Texas Polka community for more than four decades. Back Pew Brewing Company beer will be served, or for those that prefer vino, there will be wine from Haak Winery, based in Santa Fe, Texas. Homemade German food at this year’s event will include sausage, sauerkraut and potato salad prepared by the Holy Smokers.
Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children. Advanced tickets are on sale now at kwoktoberfest.org. For more information, call 281-928-4305.
