Oktoberfest Island Getaway

Welcome to EWU Libraries' annual fundraiser.

We are excited about the theme this year:  Island Getaway, and have all kinds of lively plans in the making, including live and silent auctions, Island music, entertainment and food! 


Plan your island attire and join us on Saturday, October 17 for a getaway like no other!
Help us raise some gold treasure for the Collection Endowment Fund!

A sincere thank you to our major sponsors. These people and businesses make Oktoberfest possible. If you would like to become a sponsor please contact Carol King at

We are busy planning for a whale of an event but, as always, Oktoberfest will include:

  • Dinner
  • Beer and wine tasting
  • Entertainment by our Star Search winners 
  • Live Music
  • Live and Silent Auction

Got Talent?  Want a chance to win $500?  Check out our EWU Libraries' Star Search competition!  The winner will get $500 and will perform at the event!  EWU students are eligible to enter this talent contest for a chance to win a $500 cash prize sponsored by WestCoast Entertainment and TicketsWest. Early October, after a panel of judges names the top three finalists, the winner will be selected by the EWU community!  More information can be found on the Star Search webpage.

We hope to see you at Oktoberfest 2015!  Remember, all proceeds go to the EWU Libraries' Collection Endowment Fund to purchase books, journals, and electronic resources for students, faculty, staff and the EWU community at large.

Come join the fun on Saturday, October 17, 2015 - 5:00-10:30 pm
