St. Matthias Kids’ Carnival & Oktoberfest 2018
Saturday, October 27th from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm


Our annual Kids’ Carnival and Oktoberfest is a fun-filled afternoon which features several activities for the young ones like a bounce house, petting zoo (sponsored by 4-H), face painting and carnival games. For the young-at-hear, we have live music from our traditional “German” band, and local band, “ConverGents.” The Mid-Peninsula Old Time Car Club will be here with cars on display, and the Redwood City Fire and San Mateo County Sherriff Departments are also here to round out this truly community based event.

Brats and hot dogs, beer and soda will be for sale. A meal ticket is just $10 per person, and children under 5 eat FREE.

Raffle Grand Prize is $1,000, plus many other prizes. Raffle Tickets are available to purchase for $25 each or 5 for $100.
