The Oktoberfest Mascots Committee is under the Marketing umbrella and represents Onkel Hans and his nephews Ziggy unt Zaggy. The Committee provides these mascots, and escorts to any and all events when and wherever needed. We work year-round to provide Onkel Hans for the community, whether during the Festival, or at special request events throughout the year. This Committee works closely with other Committees, such as Conventions and Schools, who need Onkel Hans when providing entertainment for groups and children.
