RICHMOND, Va. — The St. Benedict’s Oktoberfest is a  much anticipated, and well-attended festival that provides ample opportunity to try a tremendous amount of different beer, eat some tasty German food, and help support Catholic education.

The event is at 300 N. Sheppard Street. Admission is free.  Hours are Friday 4-11 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Plenty of people head over on Friday night, and food lines can be really long. Saturday afternoon is a great time to try a lot of beer and food lines aren’t as long.

Sunday afternoon is also less crowded, but beers tend to start tapping out.

Check out all the German food (sauerkraut balls! Potato pancakes!) that will be sold to help you wash down the beer, here.
