The event is held outdoors—under the big tent on the church grounds. Historic St. John’s German Lutheran Church of Bradford is located at 900 Co. Rd. 5 NW, Isanti, MN (just 2 1/2 miles west of Isanti on Co. Rd. 5 NW).

Oktoberfest at Historic St. John’s is a one-time-a-year fund-raiser to replenish funds invested this past year: providing upkeep of the church and adjacent grounds, repainting both the inside and outside of this National Historic Register listed church, and making upgrades for parking.

Oktoberfest is sponsored by the Friends of Historic St. John’s, working to preserve and maintain this irreplaceable National Historic Register property for your generation—and the next.
