(Waterloo Region, ON, Canada – May 16, 2018) Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, a not-for-profit organization, is thrilled to announce the opening of Oktoberfest Haus @ LOT42 - Global Flex Campus. Oktoberfest Haus @ LOT42 will be open six days of the festival. The venue will also be home to a number of other Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest events including the Miss Oktoberfest Gala Ball, A Blooming Affair Fashion Show and the Women of the Year Awards.

The over 5,000-person capacity venue will represent the festival as another landmark destination in the community. As a festhalle, Oktoberfest Haus @ LOT42 will be designed from the ground-up to emulate the festival in Munich, Germany, from games and entertainment, to food and decor.

The launch of Oktoberfest Haus marks the 50th Anniversary of the festival as a staple of the community that will promote vitality in the festival for another fifty years to come. The initiative represents new partnership opportunity for local German Clubs, Festhallen and corporate partners, as well as a renewed opportunity for community partnerships with a goal to increase dollars back into Waterloo Region non-profit organizations. Packages outlining these opportunities will be made available soon.

“Oktoberfest Haus @ LOT42 offers a new venue to welcome many of the hundreds of thousands of friends who come to participate in our festival each year. This exciting new location allows the festival and our organization to continue to engage our Festhallen partners in valuable ways, and ensure our festival will be enjoyed by a new generation for another 50 years,” said Margo Jones, 2018 Festival President of K-W Oktoberfest Inc.
