St. Joseph the Worker Octoberfest

What is Octoberfest?

Octoberfest is our largest event of the year. On the first Sunday of October, we invite our community and greater Dubuque to gather in the school gym. There’s food, a silent, auction, a craft fair, games and more.

This event is a great opportunity for parishioners to connect with each other and with our guests. Parishioners volunteer and work together to help organize and run the event. Visitors and parishioners bond over a good meal and fun games.

Octoberfest is also our largest parish fundraiser. The proceeds from this event help support the work our parish does to help the poor and to create a strong community of faith.

Get Involved

Octoberfest would not be such a huge success without the help and support of our amazing volunteers. We are in need of some motivated parishioners to help organize and chair the event.

We are always in need of volunteers and donations for our big fundraiser of the year! If you would like to sign up to volunteer, click the button below:
