Octoberfest Information

  • Hello Hilltop Family, 


    Octoberfest is coming on October 15th from 11-4! Our last Octoberfest Carnival was in 2019, and we are so excited to bring the FUN back to Hilltop this year!! Many of you haven't been to an Octoberfest Carnival or don't remember it because 2019 seems like a lifetime ago! 

    Octoberfest is Hilltop's biggest fundraiser of the year which helps us fund so many wonderful things at Hilltop like Mr. Brett environmental learning, Art Adventure, the very popular book vending machine, supplies for the teachers, conference meals for teachers, scholarships for students in need, school improvements, recess equipment, and much more! Our goal each year is to raise $28,000 to fund all of these awesome things! We hope to raise even more this year to help fund the new playground!! 

    Octoberfest is a super fun day where your kids can play carnival games, bounce in bounce houses, dunk Mr. Moch in the dunk tank, and win prizes to their heart's content. While your kids enjoy the fun games and activities, you can visit with your neighbors, meet new people, try your luck in the raffle, and bid on our AWESOME online silent auction!! There will also by yummy food and treats, so you don’t even have to make lunch!! It is a highlight of the year that you don't want to miss! 

    Check your child's homework folder TODAY for an orange envelope which will tell you everything that you need to know! 

    NEW this year!! If you don’t like the crowds or don’t want the hassle of buying game tickets, we will have the opportunity to bid on a private VIP Octoberfest experience!! Watch your inbox for the early auction link coming on September 30th! The VIP experience will include a private Octoberfest hour from 10-11am for 10 families, UNLIMITED game wristbands for your entire family, VIP parking, popcorn, cotton candy, and some fun Westonka swag!! 

    We also have a few opportunities for your family or business to sponsor the Octoberfest Carnival FUN!
