Contests!!!
 

Bier Stein Holding contests will take place at Ziegenbock / Warsteiner stage, located at Heritage Park.  Referees will be watching as contestants hold their full stein at arms length.  They'll be looking for the longest steadiest hold.  Start to droop, bend, change posture or spill, you're out.  Separate contests for ladies and men.  Awesome Gift Certificates provided by Texas Beer Bus for the winners!

Hollerin' Contest  takes place Saturday afternoon at 5:30 at the Texas Stage.  Hollerin' is like yodelin', just a little louder and a little less Alpine.  This is a great contest for the kids!   Prizes provided by Texas Renaissance Festival!

Chicken Dance Contest takes place Sunday afternoon at 3:20 at the Warsteiner / Ziegenbock Stage.  Creativity and enthusiasm is encouraged.  Prizes provided by Lustig Tours Holiday!
