Meet your 2017 Festmeister. . . Dean Wählend! 2018 Festmeister TBA!

What’s a Festmeister, you ask? The Festmeister presides over the Oktoberfest event and appoints a Festscheister to be his sidekick. What’s a Festscheister…kinna speaks for itself, doesn’t it?!

Dean Wahlund will preside over this year’s Oktoberfest as the official Festmeister! Gates for Oktoberfest cannot open until the Festmeister declares it so!

Trent Nielsen will create all kinds of shenanigans as the official 2017 Festscheister! 






All Access Oktoberfest Buttons!

Make sure you get your ALL ACCESS Oktoberfest button for only $5 from any St. Peter Ambassador or at the Festgrounds gate!
