#Wektoberfest 2014

Celebrity #Wektoberfest Auction

This year you have the chance to Oktoberfest for an extra day!  For the first time ever, Waterloo Innovation Network presents #Wektoberfest. Come out with your family, friends, and fellow business minded festivalgoers for a Sunday celebration of music and business in Waterloo Region.

Mike Wekerle (the newest Dragon from the CBC hit show Dragons’ Den) will be there too, but not just to mingle! He and our VIP judges will be giving out hope and crushing dreams at a live presentation of the show, Dragons Den Live.

Spend the afternoon tasting some great food, listening to some talented musical acts, and experiencing what it’s like to be in the Dragons’ Den! All proceeds from the event will be going to the YWCA of Kitchener-Waterloo, plus an additional gift of $5,000.

Don’t know Mike Wekerle yet? Find out more about the newest CBC Dragon.
