ATTENTION STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS: You can participate in the fall festival by sponsoring a booth. If your group has sponsored a booth before, you know that this is an excellent opportunity to raise money for your organization. Booths, which sell products, will be required to pay a small percentage (7% of Gross Sales) to the Volga German Society to help defray expenses. All food items must be homemade. The number of booths will be limited. Priority will be given to organizations that participated last year.
To sponsor a booth, please complete the 2014 Oktoberfest Booth Request Form on Tiger[Link]. Student organizations must have been a Registered Student Organization
in the previous year to be considered for an Oktoberfest booth. Forms
must be submitted through Tiger[Link] by Wednesday, September 24, 2014.
You will also need to upload a copy of your merchandise design (i.e. t-shirt, koozie, cup, etc) and complete an Application for Fundraising Project. All booth requests and merchandise logos will be reviewed by the Oktoberfest Merchandise Approval Committee. The Center for Student Involvement will notify you when your request has been approved or denied. Do NOT order t-shirts or items with logos until you receive approval notification from the Oktoberfest Merchandise Approval Committee.
Each organization will be responsible for building its own booth. Your organization also must furnish its own tables, chairs, etc. If you have not done so already, your organization may want to think about constructing a permanent booth that could be used from year to year. Booths should emphasize German history, food and heritage. Oktoberfest will start at 11:00 A.M. Friday October 10, 2014, with Opening Ceremony. You will sell from 11:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M.
SPECIAL NOTE: If your organization needs a cash box for Oktoberfest, please make sure to complete a request through the IFAS system.
Please remember the final deadline to submit an Oktoberfest Booth Request Form is Wednesday, September 24.
Thank you for your involvement in Oktoberfest & Homecoming activities! We look forward to an exciting and fun-filled weekend again this year!
