For nearly a decade, Small & Associates Real Estate has been a sponsor of St. Benedict’s Oktoberfest. This is such a great event to welcome in autumn and even have a little piece of Germany in our own city! If you’ve never been and you love beer, dancing, and German cuisine, we say it’s worth stopping in to get a taste.
Why does St. Benedict host this event every year? From their website, “St. Benedict Parish has a strong German tradition, being established by the Benedictine monks who staffed St. Mary’s German Catholic Church in downtown Richmond. With the growth of the “suburbs” in the early 20th Century, the Benedictines felt that establishing a new parish (and Catholic Military Boys’ School) in a suburb was a wise move. Many of the charter members of the new St. Benedict parish were German, and a number were actually brewers. When looking for an event to raise funds for scholarships, establishing an Oktoberfest with this history seemed natural!”.
All the proceeds go towards Catholic education and assist with financial aid for students who want to attend St. Benedict.
