The is free for the whole family.

- Oktoberfest Spring Fundraiser
- This is the STAR of the evening. The Spring Fundraiser is our top fundraising event of the year. This is the first IN-PERSON event we have had since 2019 and it's going to be great. Your ticket includes entrance to the event, food, and one free drink at the bar (bar will remain open as a cash bar during the night.)
- Events during the night include:
- Live Auction: Get access to EXCLUSIVE live auction items that include trips, memorabilia signed by a certain comic book genius (hint, hint), a Traeger grill package, an awesome fire pit and more. These are ONLY available for bidding at the event.
- Online Auction: We have many more items available on the online auction. You are also able to bid on these items as well!
- Stein Games: Start your push-ups now and get up that arm strength to participate in the Stein Holding contest generally featured at Oktoberfest events each year. It is $5 to participate and the winner splits the pot with the school. If Stein Holding isn't your jam, then test your ability to hold as many Steins as possible all at once. Again, $5 to participate and the pot is split between the school and winner.
- Music: While mingling, enjoy music brought to you by Mile High Music Patrol!
- Robot Demos: See, in action, the new robots that we are fundraising for at the event.
- We have a limited amount of tickets, so get yours today: Oktoberfest Tickets
- Oktoberfest Online Auction
- There will be a simultaneous Online Auction. Details will come out shortly on how to register with our system, Trellis. There is no special ticket needed to participate in the online auction - it is free to all.
