Bavarian Experience Stage

Bring Out Your Bavarian
This stage offers unique and fun-filled experiences and contests to "bring out the Bavarian” in all of us! Learn how to Polka with German dance lessons, meet the brewmasters from Franconia and Tupps, and listen to live music every evening. And what would an Oktoberfest be without a stein holding competition and a brat eating contest?

On Saturday, Hofbrau Bier is looking for men and woman who love beer - and a challenge - to compete in the Masskrugstemmen – stein holding contest. The person with the longest time wins a free trip to Las Vegas for the next round of the Hofbrau competition. And on Sunday, the Bavarian Experience Stage hosts the first annual Tupps brat eating contest with a trophy and prizes going to the winner!
