Oktoberfest theme decided for 2016

It seems like Oktoberfest just ended, but organizers are already gearing up for next year’s fest.

It will be applied to all of next year’s Oktoberfest merchandise.

With the theme now in place, organizers need your help creating the design for the button.

“We can see up to 60 different designs, usually between 50 and 60 come in, we do allow people to submit more than one, so a lot of people may submit two, three, four different designs,” said  Kevin Buelow, president of La Crosse Festivals Inc.

Button designs are due by January 20th, details can be found at www.oktoberfestusa.com.

The winning design will be unveiled in March.
