2013 Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest 2013 is scheduled to be held on Thursday, October 24, from 6 - 9 p.m. at Busch Gardens. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the event so make sure that you set aside the date and plan to attend one of the most anticipated affairs of the year.

Guests will enjoy dinner, refreshing beverages, exhilarating rides, a variety of challenging games and an energizing show presented live on stage.

Sponsors are needed to assist in off-setting costs of staging the event and a variety of options exist for all Alliance member firms. The Magic Black Cat sponsorship ($750) offers premium exposure for businesses by providing exclusive sponsorship of a designated ride or game - and a limited number of these are available. The Monster Bat sponsorship ($400) offers recognition in pre-event publicity and at the event. Door prize donations with a $50 minimum value (limit two per business) also are needed.
