A Fundraiser for Newman Congregational Church


Rumford, R.I. - Newman Congregational Church, U.C.C., is excited to present Oktoberfest, an exciting event featuring a full meal and live entertainment!

Oktoberfest is a unique fundraising event that will feature a full German experience similar to Oktoberfest in Munich! All attendees will be treated to a full German meal with authentic Bavarian fare, including appetizers, entrées, and desserts. Additionally, the event features a cash bar for all of your favorite adult beverages and non-alcoholic items.

While you are enjoying this tasty meal and libations, we will have a live German band, Hofbräu Spieler Band. Renowned for playing Oktoberfest celebrations across New England, Hofbräu Spieler Band includes clarinet, trumpet, trombone, tuba, and accordion. Also on tap for entertainment are Newman’s own singers offering German traditional songs, featuring Newman’s resident German aficionado, Barbara Youmans! Who knows, we may encourage you to sing along on some of our favorite German drinking songs!

Newman’s Oktoberfest will take place on Sunday, October 20, 2019 from 4-7 PM at the Knights of Columbus Hall located at 532 Arcade Ave, Seekonk, MA 02771. The public is cordially invited and there is a suggested donation of $20. Tickets are available at the door or at the Newman Church office that may be contacted at 401-434-4742 x10 or by visiting 100 Newman Avenue, Rumford, RI. Sponsorship opportunities are also available by contacting the church office. After the event, folks will have an opportunity to meet the musicians. We welcome you for this evening of fun music, food, and celebration – it may be the best thing you do this autumn!
