Corporate Night – “Lufthansa Technik Gemütlichkeit!”

Lufthansa Technik Gemütlichkeit! is an incredible evening of networking, singing, dancing (chicken dance et al), MassKrugs and celebration of true Gemütlichkeit, hitting on all cylinders throughout the evening. Be the first to sample our signature German biers and hear guest performers flown in from Germany. You’ll experience first-hand the transformation of River West Festival Park into an Oktoberfest celebration of exponential proportions.

This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Oktoberfest, Inc., Your purchase of a table supports the efforts behind the scenes to bring an incredible event to Tulsa while benefitting the services and amenities of River Parks Authority. Oktoberfest, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization, and table purchases are fully deductible as a charitable donation (less the value of the Festival Money allotment).

Like the huge Zelts at Munich Oktoberfest, these tables sell out quickly. 2018 Gemütlichkeit tables are now on sale.


Tables are on sale now for one of the most anticipated events of the fall. Lufthansa Technik Gemütlichkeit (ɡəˈmo͞otlikˌkīt), Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa’s signature fundraiser, is scheduled for Wednesday, October 17th at River West Festival Park.  Introduced in the late 1980’s as an opportunity to thank area media and overall sponsors, Gemütlichkeit has evolved as a festival preview that embraces community-wide participation, and supports the non-profit Tulsa Oktoberfest, Inc.

The mission of the non-profit Tulsa Oktoberfest, Inc. is to produce an authentic celebration of German culture, which benefits Tulsa and the River Parks. Gemütlichkeit! supports this mission with a private evening of celebration and culture, recognizing festival supporters who bring this event to life each year.

“Gemütlichkeit is truly a welcoming event celebrating Tulsa’s spirit of community while celebrating German heritage. We are especially pleased to welcome Lufthansa Technik as our inaugural presenting sponsor for this evening,” offers Ashley Webb, chairman of the board of Tulsa Oktoberfest, Inc. “The support we receive from our business community is unparalleled and greatly appreciated.

Locally based Lufthansa Technik has supported Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa for many years, as the sponsor of the always-popular Lufthansa Technik BierGarten. “Lufthansa Technik is pleased to increase its support of Oktoberfest by underwriting Gemütlichkeit. The audience for this evening is a strategic fit for us and provides a great platform to promote our commitment to the Tulsa community,” offers Trish Riedesel, Director Finance for Lufthansa Technik.

Considered one of the best German food festivals by Bon Appetit, Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa features authentic German cuisine and more than 80 brands of beer from around the world in nine Zelts (Tents) featuring unique decorations, themes and entertainment. “Linde Oktoberfest Tulsa is known throughout the U.S. as the most authentic celebration of German culture, closely patterned after Munich’s iconic Oktoberfest celebration,” offers Tonja Carrigg, Festival Director. This year promises to be the best ever as we celebrate 40 years of bringing Gemütlichkeit to life in Green Country!”
