(Waterloo Region, ON, Canada – September 18, 2018) The annual Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest FestGuide has arrived - and it’s digital! This annual publication provides festgoers with all the information to plan their 2018 visit in one convenient location.

“With more people accessing information online, we are pleased to share our official FestGuide in a digital version ahead of the 50th Anniversary of the festival,” said Margo Jones, President of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. “The online official FestGuide features an overview of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, highlights our full calendar of events, showcases community partners, and more. There is something for everyone during the festival, and with the FestGuide now available online, more people can easily discover all that Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest has to offer.”

FestGuides can be viewed on the festival website at www.oktoberfest.ca on any internet connected device including smartphones, laptops, iPads and tablets, allowing people to plan in advance of Canada’s greatest Bavarian festival. Miss Oktoberfest 2017, Mikaila Emrich is featured on the cover of the 68 page guide. There will be a number of printed FestGuides available at the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest store and some partner locations.

“I think the digital FestGuide will be a big hit this year,” said Alfred Lowrick, Executive Director of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. “With more and more people using smartphones daily, it only made sense to create a digital version of the annual FestGuide and provide festers with easy access to the information they want, when they want it.”

Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year with a special anniversary concert celebration. As previously announced, Dallas Smith and Cold Creek Country will headline the event at the Concordia Club in Kitchener on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Tickets are still available.
