Tulsa's Oktoberfest is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our mission is to perpetuate an annual premier German folk heritage festival which will enhance Tulsa and its River Parks system.
Where does the money go?
Each year, Oktoberfest retains a reserve to perpetuate the festival. When possible, donations are made to Tulsa's River Parks -- some $785,000 to date! Recently, the festival contributed to the construction of a new playground at 41st and Riverside.
The International Festivals & Events Association has estimated that Oktoberfest has an economic impact on the community of more than $7.6 million each year!
Volunteers are key!
A core group, the board of trustees, executive committee and working committee meet yearlong to plan Oktoberfest.
During the festival, they are joined by some 2,000 volunteers to operate the event.
