Ladies Day Luncheon coming soon as part of Oktoberfest celebrations

Oktoberfest celebrations will get underway in about two and a half weeks in La Crosse.

That includes the annual Ladies Day Luncheon.

The event brings together Mrs. Oktoberfests from throughout the years.

Last year’s event sold out, so the event had to be moved to a larger venue.

The Oktoberfest royal family will be joined by women and men for the event.

The hope is to bring the spirit of Gemütlichkeit to more than the four days of the fest.

“It’s just one of those finale pieces of Oktoberfest, we don’t want you to go away on Sunday and say it’s all over, come back on Monday, come down to the luncheon, meet the Mrs. Oktoberfest, it’s just a great event,” said Barbara Larsen, 2009 Mrs. Oktoberfest.

The lunch is September 30th and includes a social hour, with a lunch that will follow at the Cargill Room in downtown La Crosse.

Tickets are available on the Oktoberfest website.
