Oktoberfests have been celebrated in Canada for a long time, not least at the Concordia Club, by holding annual dances. Brass band music, folkdance demonstrations and “Bratwursts” with “Sauerkraut” were an integral part of these celebrations. Oktoberfest 1967 however was totally different. As Concordia’s contribution to Canada’s 100thbirthday, our President Ren Ghirincelli and manager Julius Rauchfuβ organized a four day festival, complete with beer tent, several orchestras, a shooting booth, souvenir sales, “Lederhosen” and “Dirndlkleider”. The atmosphere and the thereby generated income were second to none. All profits were donated to two organizations “Big Brothers” and the “Multiple Sclerosis Society”.

The celebrations had left such a positive impression in the city that it came to the notice of the chamber of commerce. The decision was taken to organize a city-wide Oktoberfest and “Oktoberfest Incorporated” was created. The four German speaking Clubs, Concordia, Schwaben, Transylvania and Alpenclub, together with the entrepreneur Jonas Bingeman, were the foundation of this enterprise and its first president elect was the president of Budd Canada, Darwin Clay.
