Entering its third year at Frederick’s Oktoberfest, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Teams of five will compete in Oktoberfest spirited competitions to be crowned the 2020 Oktoberfest Games champions! Team Registration is limited to 16 teams.

Here are the rules:

  • Teams must have exactly five members
  • Team registration – $200/team. Registration gets you entrance on Friday night, a stein, and a free stein fill
  • Games begin at 6:30PM, immediately following the ceremonial keg tapping event.
  • Some games are individual games, and some the whole team will participate.
  • The winning team receives a trophy, entrance to Saturday’s festivities for each team member, and the opportunity to select a Frederick non-profit (501(c)3) organization to be the recipient of a $2000 unrestricted grant.

Stay tuned for 2020 team registration in April!
