For these folks, Oktoberfest is a labor of love, a chance to give back to our community. They selflessly give of their time and treasure to support Kirkland’s community events.

Kirkland is a better place because of these people and I am proud to call them my friends.

We hope you enjoy the festival and have as much fun visiting Oktoberfest Kirkland as we have had producing it. Prost!
