This year’s Medford Oktoberfest will be the first to include a charity steinholding contest, a traditional Bavarian strength contest in which competitors properly hold a full one-liter bier stein out in front of their bodies with a straight arm, parallel to the ground, without spilling. The competition will utilize the official rules of the US Steinholding Association and, yes, that is really a thing (we were just as surprised to find out as you were).
Registration cost is $20 per person. All participants will be allowed to keep their official competition stein filled with a liter of bier, and the chance to be crowned the greatest holder of a bier stein in all the land, or at least Medford (and maybe Medford Lakes). All profits will benefit the charitable endeavors of the Medford Business Association.
REGISTRATION OPENS AT NOON AT THE BAND MERCHANDISE TENT
LIMITED TO THE FIRST 16 REGISTRANTS
