Nashville's 32nd annual Oktoberfest took place on Oct. 8 in the historic Germantown community. Hosted by the Church of the Assumption and Monroe Street United Methodist Church, Oktoberfest is a free, not-for-profit event with proceeds going to the continuing restoration of historic Assumption Catholic Church and Monroe Street United Methodist Church, as well as continuing outreach projects for the needy.
The day began with an opening ceremony at 9 a.m. followed by services at Assumption Catholic Church and Monroe Street United Methodist Church. After that, the two churches held tours and had booths set up including the Monroe Street United Methodist Church bake sale and the Assumption Catholic Church country store.
Although the event has become somewhat synonymous with beer drinking, bratwurst, and bands, plenty of other booths had Christian themes with everything from Celtic crosses to rosaries and art. The Oktoberfest slogan is: Celebrating Faith, Friendship and Fun since 1980.
