La Crosse, Wis. (WEAU) - Oktoberfest USA, which was scheduled to be held September 24th-27th in La Crosse, has been canceled. The event is planning on returning in 2021 on September 30th-October 3rd.

Organizers released the following statement:

“It is with great disappointment that the La Crosse Festivals Board has made the difficult decision to cancel Oktoberfest USA for 2020. Following discussions with local leaders and experts, and after careful review of the County Health Department Compass, it has become clear that we would not be able to host an Oktoberfest celebration this year in accordance with published guidelines.

La Crosse Festivals will now turn our focus to finding other ways to spread Gemütlichkeit and provide support to our community through these difficult times. We look forward to celebrating our 60th Oktoberfest with everyone September 30 – October 3, 2021.”
