The 2021 Klamath Basin Oktoberfest, which was scheduled for Sept. 18 at the Bill Collier Ice Arena, has been canceled.

The Klamath County Economic Development Association staff and its executive board made the decision on Tuesday.

“Reaching this decision was very difficult for the organization,” read the release from KCEDA. “However, we ultimately believe the most important consideration is the health and safety of our community, our hospital staff, and our children, as they return to the classroom.

KCEDA said it plans to put on the event next year, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022.
