Oktoberfest Money, Part 2

October 28, 2010

Oktoberfest in Leavenworth. For some, it’s the biggest party of the

year in the Bavarian Villiage. For others, it’s a headache best avoided three weekends in

October. What’s undeniable, no matter what side of the keg you stand on the issue, is the fact the

event generates some serious money. How much? And where does that money go after expenses?


"font-size: 14pt">KOHO’s Clint Strand sat down with Projekt Bayern President Larry Meyer for an extended

conversation about just that. In this segment of the interview, Meyer details where that money’s gone

after expenses. Some examples over the last twelve months:

Large copper water fountain at

the Festhalle:       $35,000
