Ike Butler Vienna Oktoberfest Burgermeister

From its first installation in 2008, Vienna Oktoberfest has truly captured my German heart and added another highlight to feeling at home here in Vienna! There is so much to love about Oktoberfest: great music, German food and other tasty morsels from local food vendors, fun entertainment, local businesses showcasing their wares and services, kids' activities galore, and, this year for the first time, tasty beer from Vienna's own Caboose Brewery! The Vienna Business Association is doing a fantastic job organizing this event and raises the bar each year. I am excited to see all the moving parts coming together again for a great event on October 1. Back by popular demand are an Oktoberfest fashion competition among attendees, a beer stein holding contest, the famous Chicken Dance dance-off, and a polka contest. It will be my honor and delight to be "Frau Burgermeister" for this year's festivities and to pass on some "Prosits der Gemutlichkeit" to everyone. So get your Oktoberfest gear ready, practice your sing-alongs, bring your family, and meet with friends and neighbors as we catch up on old and new stories and enjoy Vienna at its small-town best.
