Dave Guepfer, who served on the festival’s board of directors for 16 years and recently retired as food and beverage manager for the La Crosse Center, has been named the 2022 Maple Leaf Parade Marshal. The Maple Leaf Parade starts at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1.
Guepfer’s years of service on the board of directors began in 1987, culminating as festival president in 1991. Since then, he has had numerous stints back on the board adding up to 16 years, serving on at least a dozen Oktoberfest committees and volunteer worker positions, including coordinating the Festmaster’s Ball and Craft Beer Night. He also helped with many of the concert performers on the grounds. And for the last 20 years, he has assisted with tapping the Golden Keg on the festival’s opening day.
