First Annual Oystoberfest

On Saturday, October 21, 2006, Connor's Heroes Foundation and St. Thomas Episcopal Church joined efforts and hosted the First Annual Oystoberfest on the church grounds in Ginter Park. The event was a smashing success! Over 500 people enjoyed perfect weather, great food, live music, and children's activities (including crafts, a soccer area, Moon Walk and a pony ride).
Fried and raw oysters, oyster shooters and barbeque were cooked to perfection by Johnny Giavos of the Sidewalk Cafe, 3 Monkeys, Kuba Kuba and the new Kitchen 64. Susan Greenbaum, Sara Tandy, Silverback Blues Burners, and Uisce Beatha provided music and entertained the crowd throughout the day. All proceeds benefitted Connor's Heroes and St. Thomas Church.
The 2nd annual Oystoberfest will be held on October 20, 2007 at St. Thomas Church. Be sure to log on to to find out the musical line-ups and other information.
