La Crosse’s annual Oktoberfest celebrationExplore La Crosse and Oktoberfest USA are looking for inspiring and engaging stories to tell through video and social media channels centered around Oktoberfest and fall festival experiences in southwestern Wisconsin.

La Crosse-area visitors and residents are invited to share stories of their traditions and experiences with La Crosse’s annual Oktoberfest celebration and other fall festivals and activities. Individuals, couples, families, and groups of friends are encouraged to share their memories, either from one particularly memorable visit or their combined experiences from over the years.

Explore La Crosse is looking in particular for stories about visitors who haven’t missed an Oktoberfest in years, their can’t-miss Festground activities and parades, their favorite places to stay and restaurants to return to, the winery or brewery they always have to visit, or the particular scenic drive, hike, or bike ride they always make time for during their stay.

Stories can be submitted as words, images, video, or a combination of the three, and will be told from the traveler’s perspective in order to connect with the audience, entice other potential visitors to come and have a similar experience, and overall to showcase a great “fall in Wisconsin” experience.
