Oktoberfest season is almost here (whoo hoo!). In my home town, Kitchener-Waterloo, Oktoberfest is huge. No joke. We throw one of the largest Oktoberfest parties in the world, the largest being Germany.
Amongst all the festival planning that takes place, there is a whole layer of planning amongst friends and family to get tickets to the same hall, arrange pre and post festing activities and to ensure everyone gets to and from festing celebrations safely.
It is not uncommon for tickets to be an early stress point. When tickets go up for sale, there is a rush to get tickets, especially enough tickets for a group before they sell out. The day ticket sales open, it is critical to ensure you have the funds available to purchase enough tickets. Speaking from experience, it is not fun to scramble to find one more ticket for that friend who took a little too long to RSVP.
Planning & Management
Experiencing Oktoberfest doesn’t have to be anything less than awesome. Really.
Set up an event page with Eventastic and experience Oktoberfest with your friends and family without a logistical nightmare. Your event page is where you can share the details about tickets, collect funds in advance, share pre and post get together details and manage other logistics such as food, rides, etc.
4 Steps to an Oktoberfest Event Page
Get your friends excited about the approaching Oktoberfest season and get your planning under way by creating an event page on Eventastic. Once you have the basic details, set up your page by doing the following:
1. Create an account on Eventastic
2. Create a new event on Eventastic
3. Upload detailed information about the party as prompted through the easy to use interface
b. Tickets – Tip: put a purchase deadline so you can buy festing tickets once you’ve collected the funds
c. Pre and post party info
d. Transportation details
4. Add promotional images and video (optional but highly effective)
Once your event page is set up, send out the invites to your party via Email, Facebook or Twitter!
My favourite feature I love to use with friends is the ability to upload photos to the event page throughout the night. During the after party, while you’re winding down or catching your second wind, stream the photos presentation style and let everyone have a good laugh!
Successful Epic Oktoberfesting Strategy
Taking the planning route of creating an event page to collect money upfront, is an easy way for you to make sure Oktoberfest celebrations are epic and that you’re not risking any of your own cash or setting yourself up for a ticket scramble by buying tickets upfront without official confirmation from co-festers.
