O'Zapft Is! Addison Oktoberfest Official Keg Tapping

It’s tapped! Following Munich tradition, the Addison mayor will tap the official first keg to inaugurate Addison Oktoberfest and get the celebration going.

Tapping of the Kegs

All the bier and bratwurst would not be possible without our partners, Marriott Quorum and Crowne Plaza. Join us for a ceremonial tapping of the keg in their honor.

Bier Belly Contest

Bier bellies take years- sometimes decades- to sculpt into perfect form, but it only takes a few moments for all that hard work and dedication to pay off at our Oktoberfest Bier Belly Contest! Show off the goods with special guest judges, the Dallas Mavs ManiAACs.

Bier Barrel Rolling

Just roll with it! Grab a partner and take turns rolling a Paulaner bier barrel one-handed against another team. Stay between the lines, and may the best team win! Ages 21+ only.

Stein Carrying Relay

Grab your freunde and compete in a relay-style race to see which team can carry two dozen Paulaner liter steins the fastest. Ages 21+ only.

Bier Maiden Stein Carrying

Ladies are you ready to get a taste of the life of a Munich Oktoberfest waitress? Join us in the Paulaner Biergarten to see how many filled Oktoberfest steins you can carry without spilling the goods. Ages 21+ only.


You may be strong but are you Bavarian strong? Test your strength and outlast the competition as you hold a one-liter stein of beer at shoulder level for as long as you can. Registered contestants will be required to purchase a full liter of bier. Ages 21+ only.

Patrons may register for games at the Addison Oktoberfest Merch Tent. Spaces are limited so register early. All bier game contestants must be 21+
