Dear Prospective Sponsor,

The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 is proud to announce the "9th Annual Oktoberfest' located in Historic Downtown Downers Grove!

We invite you and your organization to be an official Event Sponsor for the 9th Annual Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 Oktoberfest 2022. This event directly benefits all 11 elementary schools and 2 middle schools in the Downers Grove District 58 School District.

The German-themed celebration will take place on Friday, September 16th from 4pm-11pm & Saturday, September 17th, from 1pm-6pm, including a Kids Zone from 1pm-5pm, (closed between 6pm-6:30pm), reopening for Saturday's music headliner from 7pm-11pm.

We will host a 2-day event West of the Main Street Train Station, In the Heart of Downtown Downers Grove and will continue through 11pm each day. Live music and entertainment, German fare and seasonal beer will be served to celebrate the beginning of the fall season.

This community event will provide an opportunity for our 2022 Event Sponsors to:

  • Gain or extend visibility as a notable Education Foundation sponsor and supporter in the Downers Grove community

  • Participate in a successfully produced community event that hosts over 2500 attendees each year

  • Give a day company team building or service to volunteer with other individuals in the community directly connected to District 58 grade schools

  • Support an event that directly benefits the schools, students, and families in Downers Grove School District 58

If you or your organization are interested in this year's Oktoberfest Event Sponsorship and also would like to volunteer for this event, please contact any one of our contacts below to confirm your commitment so that we can ensure all sponsorship benefits (i.e. name placement on the t-shirt and event day materials, etc). for your selected sponsorship level.

We hope that you will consider sponsoring and/or volunteering for Oktoberfest 2022 and helping District 58 schools meet their annual funding needs.

Prost!
