More “Zicke Zacke,” more “Oi Oi Oi” with new Oktoberfest VIP tickets in La Crosse

Oktoberfest VIP ticket holders receive early entry to the Tapping of the Golden Keg, separate restrooms, entrance, and more.



Sick of waiting in line to see the Tapping of the Golden Keg? Have you always wanted to be right up front, up close and personal with the Oktoberfest Royal Family?

Now is your chance with the 2022 addition of Oktoberfest VIP tickets.

The much-anticipated tapping of the Samuel Adams Golden Keg takes place at the downtown La Crosse Festgrounds as part of the Opening Ceremony at 11 a.m. Friday.

The grounds open at 9:30 a.m. and there’s always a very long line. VIP ticket holders won’t be waiting in that line, however. They will be enjoying a separate entrance and will also get early access to the grounds.

Getting in early and getting right up front dramatically increases your odds and tasting the magical elixir contained inside the historic vessel.

VIP will also get you separate bathrooms, some beer tickets, a stein, and a lanyard to brag about your VIP status among other perks.

VIP tickets can be purchased online on the Oktoberfest website or at the Oktoberfest office at the Downtown Fest Grounds. You must pick up your VIP package with VIP admission passes at the Oktoberfest office now through 9 p.m. Thursday.
