Crowd Happy Hour

The Karbach Games and Competitions Arena becomes our own center of the universe Saturday at 2:00 PM for true fans of German bier. Why? Because it is ground zero for the  Oktoberfest Bavarian Cup (Bayerische Tasse) Team Challenge, a challenge for the ages. Teams of 4 people (plus one alternate), each with a minimum of two women, will compete for the Goldenes Fass (Golden Barrel) Award, to display proudly in a lobby, break room or cubicle. The competition consists of four intense but fun games - the legendary Bier Barrel Race, the MassKrug Relay, the Strong Stein Hoist and a Mystery Competition that won't be announced until the day of the competition. There will be non-stop action and everyone will chicken dance because it will be so much fun.

Teams will accumulate points for each round. All teams must check in no later than 1:20 PM on the day of the event. All contestants must be over 21 and present valid ID at check in.

The Bavarian Cup is limited to the first 20 teams to sign up. So better get your team together quickly!

And Now Let's Go to The Dogs!


The Dachshund Dash – Watch Your Weiner Run! Presented by Woodland West Animal Hospital and Pet Resort

Wiener dogs are already funny to look at. Now try watching over 75 of them zig, zag, jump, and generally get confused in a test of speed and intelligence! Ok, we’re being dramatic. The pups just need to run 100 feet from one end of the Dash to the other. Do you have dachshund with a need for speed and a nose for the finish line? Sound easy enough? Start training your wiener dog now! Dogs wear numbered Hot Dog Bun costumes and compete in heats of five to six pups. Dogs in each heat are escorted on leash the full length of the course to encourage wagering by spectators.

NOTE: The Dachshund Dash is FREE to enter, but pre-registration is required and admission ticket ($15) must be purchased separately (Your weiner gets in free). Check out our Combo Registration Packet (Costume Parade and Race).

Wieners (winners) receive Fest Cards and prizes:

  • First – $350 Fest Card and wiener dog hat crown (must be worn throughout Oktoberfest)
  • Second – $200 Fest Card and one-of-a-kind Oktoberfest logo dog bowl
  • Third – $100 Fest Card and use of the wiener dog outhouse. Winning races MIGHT be nationally televised on ESPN (Enter Special Pups Now) network (YouTube) - you never know!

NOTE: Pre-registration required, and is free to enter your wiener; however, you will need an admission ticket to access the Dash (the pup is free!)! Click here to check out the rules - there are a few.
