Status of La Crosse Oktoberfest to be determined mid-summer
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – La Crosse Festivals is committed to ensuring a safe Oktoberfest this year and will make a decision by mid-July whether to cancel due to COVID-19 concerns.
Co-Presidents of La Crosse Festivals, James Brennan and Bobbi Schoh said, “We are committed to ensuring that if there is an Oktoberfest in La Crosse, WI, this year, that it is done safely and in full compliance of any CDC recommendations. While the current prognosis for the event proceeding as planned may not be great, we are in the fortunate position that we do not need to decide in haste. Much has changed in the past 60 days and much will change in the next 150. Mid-July has been identified as the time when a definitive decision will need to be made, but that may shift as conditions change.”
