Since its founding in 1981, Oktoberfest has supported a variety of art programs in the area. All work is done by community volunteers and proceeds support projects sponsored by the non-profit Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance. The PCAA gives out scholarships to students from Gillespie County wishing to study music or art at the university level. Also, every summer, they sponsor the Marktplatz Concert Series of free summer concerts as a "Thank-you" to the community for its support.
