Stein-Holding Contest

A Bavarian feat of strength, the stein-holding contest is a longstanding tradition to see who can hold a full stein of beer at arm's length for as long as possible.

Judged by Dan Gordon of Gordon Biersch Brewing Company, the annual contest will be held in the Biersch Garden at 3pm on both days of the festival. 

Costume Contest

New to Oktoberfest is our costume contest! With so many festival-goers getting into the spirit by wearing their lederhosen and dirndls, we thought, why not have an official contest!

So don your best Bavarian garb and join the fun in the Biersch Garden on both Saturday and Sunday at 3pm.

Biersch Garden

This large tent with tables, live music, beer, and Bavarian pretzels will make you feel like you're in Munich! A great way to relax and enjoy authentic German food while you watch or participate in the chicken dance, stein holding and costume contests!

Wine Central
