Producing a successful three day festival takes a great deal of planning and effort by an outstanding group of committed individuals. Many people put in long hours to make this event a reality.
The following people are deserving of special recognition. Given my role as Creative Director, many of the accolades come my way. I am humbled and grateful to receive them, but to me, it is the people on this list who deserve the applause. I am honored to work shoulder to shoulder with them and to call them my friends.
Thank you for your support of Kirkland Oktoberfest. Save the date for next year and we will see you September 25-27, 2015.
