DATE & TIME: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 - 7:00 p.m.

2017 was both challenging and exciting for Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. The 49th edition of Canada's Greatest Bavarian Festival included unique Family & Cultural Events; exciting entertainment; new events and activities; ongoing enthusiastic participation in Festhallen; as well as continued growth.

All this came together for Margo Jones, President of K-W Oktoberfest Inc., to oversee another successful Festival.

During the Annual General Meeting, Margo Jones will be reviewing the highlights of the 2017 Festival and will present her vision and direction for 2018 as Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest prepares to mark its 50th Anniversary.

Each media representative will be provided with a press kit containing copies of the remarks by Margo Jones, and lists of any changes to the 2018 Board of Directors and Community Advisory Council.

Mrs. Jones will be available from 6:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to have direct interviews with the media and will also be made available after the Annual General Meeting at approximately 8:00 p.m.
