Stein Hoisting National Championships

Feel the burn and get ready for eternal stein glory. This is the ultimate test of arm/shoulder strength.

The Stein Hoisting National Championships will take place on Saturday, October 10th at 6:00 pm. Men & women over 21 years of age are invited to participate in the competition. For information on participating, please stop by the stein hoisting stage or the info booth.

Keg Bowling

Alley cats and drinking lads wanted!  If you are ‘obviously not a golfer’ then Keg Bowling just might be for you.  Whether you throw around kegs on the weekend or you have never tapped a keg in your life, you’re welcome to join in the fun.  So call upon your inner Donkey Kong and get ready to roll some barrels because Keg Bowling promises to be a great time!

Bratwurst Eating Contest

Put your summer training to the test.  All those BBQ’s and all those Brats were necessary preparation for the second annual Killington Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Competition on Saturday, October 8th at 2pm. The top three champions receive a donation to a charity of their choice in the amount of $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 for third place. Come hungry because our snapping good brats will be going down by the dozens!  If you think you’ve got what it takes then join us, and become an instant legend…because Brat-King is a name that tends to stick.

Not a calorie counter and feel like your stomach can handle more brats than anyone in Vermont? Email for more information.


Stay tuned for full artist line-up
