Oktoberfest button design competition begins

Accepting designs through January 25th

La Crosse’s Oktoberfest celebration may be a long ways off, but organizers are already looking for next year’s button design.

The 2017 theme is ‘Prost to the Midwest Coast’ so submitted designs will need to be your interpretation of that theme.

Fest organizers say the competition is a great way to become a part of Oktoberfest history.

“It’s a really unique opportunity to become a part of fest history, because that button gets associated with everything related to Oktoberfest throughout the year. We do over 30,000 buttons each year, so to know that your design was on that button and it got circulated all across the country is really very special opportunity,” said Oktoberfest Operations Manager Courtney Daniels.

Designs are being accepted until January 25th. The Oktoberfest logo, a maple leaf, and ‘La Crosse, Wisconsin’ all need to be included in the design.

You can submit your design ideas at OktoberfestUSA.com.
