Oktoberfest is Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 and will take place at the Vandalia Recreation Center and Sports Complex.

Oktoberfest reinstated after  community support emerges 

The Oktoberfest will be held from Sept. 8-9 at the Vandalia Sports Complex. 

The decision to continue the Oktoberfest was made by the Board of Directors of Vandalia Sister Cities, which reversed a decision made in March to cancel the event after 40 years.

After the news of the cancellation, multiple people contacted Sister Cities about volunteering for the event. 

Shannon Dixon will co-chair the Steering Committee with Sister Cities President Harvey Kimmel. 

Any individual interested in volunteering for the Oktoberfest is asked to contact Dixon at 937-477-5025 or by email at ShannonDixonRealtor@yahoo.com.
