Leavenworth Oktoberfest canceled for second year in a row

Mar 18 2021, 12:15 pm

Those who were planning on celebrating Oktoberfest in Leavenworth this year will have to postpone their plans once again.

Festival organizers have officially announced the cancelation of the 2021 Leavenworth Oktoberfest.

“After a lot of deliberation, the Oktoberfest Team felt that anything less than the Authentic Oktoberfest Celebration normally thrown would be a disservice to all our loyal attendees,” organizers announced on their website.

State guidelines that affect entertainment, food service, dance floors, and more were all credited as reasoning to cancel the event for the second year in a row.

“By canceling this yearly event now, we can protect our patrons from losing their deposits for accommodations and travel expenses.”

Organizers are confident that the celebrations will return next year and will be revealing “exciting news” in the coming days.
