Oktoberfest T-Shirts and Hats are In – Get yours Today!
There is a lot new going on this year at Oktoberfest. One of our exciting new additions is our Oktoberfest T-shirts and hats with our brand new logo. This year the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce wanted to create something that reflected not only our town, but also the spirit of Oktoberfest. Oktobertfest has been in Montrose for 35 years and is a family tradition. We are one of the few Oktoberfest celebrations in Southern California and one of the largest. This is an event that the chamber puts on not only for the community but also to bring people into the area that are not familiar with the wonderful town of Montrose. We wanted our logo to inspire people from all over to come and experience our hometown feeling. That is why we chose a local Montrose company called Enigma Designs to design it. They are a full service promotional product company that specializes in screen-printing, embroidery and all types of promotional gear. Enigma can order your merchandise, brand your merchandise and deliver it to any locals customers for free. Don’t worry if you don’t have any artwork – their award winning art department can design it for you! They are first class. Remember they designed our logo. The chamber always likes to support local business and you should, too. Supporting local businesses helps everyone. If you want to purchase a T-shirt or a hat, just call the chamber office and we will be happy to help you.
