We made the difficult decision to not continue moving forward with Oktoberfest this year. We didn’t feel it was in the best interest of the community’s safety to keep moving forward with a mega event of 15,000-25,000 attendees + we were not going to be able to execute the event in the manner that the Health Department required us to do so while preserving the essence of Oktoberfest. We had hoped the mandates would continue to progress in a manner to allow us to continue on with the event but we are only a few weeks away and the future of the protocols required to do so do not look promising.
We will however be hosting a mixer in lieu of Oktoberfest towards the end of October, stay tuned for more updates on that to follow in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to being back in full Montrose Oktoberfest force next year.
