Over the past four years, the two-day Triangle Oktoberfest has grown to become the largest Oktoberfest celebration in Central North Carolina raising over $150,000 for numerous charitable organizations. Last year’s event attracted thousands of attendees to Cary’s Booth Amphitheatre and raised over $70,000 with more than $14,000 distributed directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as the events main charity partner. The remaining funds are allocated back to the Rotary Clubs of Apex Sunrise and Cary MacGregor for their annual community, regional, and international projects.
