A relatively young Oktoberfest USA tradition, that provides scholarships to local high school students, returns next month.
After a two-year hiatus, the 7th Annual Forks and Corks returns June 2, where the 2022 Oktoberfest button design will be unveiled.
Through the Gemütlichkeit Foundation, the event will help fund nine $1,000 scholarships to students at Aquinas, Bangor, Central, Logan, La Crescent, Onalaska, Luther and West Salem, as well as $1,000 to the Miss La Crosse Oktoberfest Scholarship Program.
The event will also include live and silent auctions, along with food and wine pairings.
Tickets are $65. The event takes place from 5-8 p.m. at the Waterfront’s Cargill Room. For more information click here.
La Crosse’s Oktoberfest celebration will run from Sept. 29-Oct. 1 this year.
