2016 Burgermeister, Rev. John Richter / Andrew Cryer

CULLMAN – Cullman’s annual Oktoberfest celebration is scheduled for Oct. 4-8 this year, and nominations for Burgermeister 2017 are now being accepted.

Being Burgermeister means being the honorary mayor of the city of Cullman during the festival. It is a great honor and previous Burgermeisters have said how much they enjoy their position.

The only qualification required is that the person must have worked in some area of Oktoberfest in previous years. And for those doing the nominating, you must ask for approval from the person you nominate for them to be considered.

Nominations can be emailed to or dropped off at the Cullman County Museum.

Nominations should be made before July 1, 2017. For more information, call the Cullman County Museum at 256-739-1258.
