Your 2019 Festmeister and Festsheister!

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?!

Craig Tolzman (right) presided over last year’s Oktoberfest as the official Festmeister! Gates for Oktoberfest cannot open until the Festmeister declares it so!

Jeff “Dugan” Volk (left) create all kinds of shenanigans as the official Festscheister! Keep an eye on him…you never know what kind of trouble he’ll kick up!

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!
