Octoberfest was founded by the Appleton Downtown Retailers Association in 1981 to showcase and promote greater awareness of downtown businesses, improve the community’s image, provide a way to help fund nonprofit organizations in the area, and enhance the quality of life in Appleton and the Fox Cities. Octoberfest, an event of the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce, continues this tradition by giving grants to projects throughout the Fox Cities.
