Why should I purchase a stein? 

Purchasing a souvenir stein for $15 includes a free wristband for those who are over 21 years of age, and you’ll get 33% more beer for the same price as a regular cup. You will also get free entry into the stein-holding contest that has some great prizes! This will be the first edition of what we hope will become a keepsake from the first annual Yorktoberfest! Quantities are limited.

Are credit cards accepted?

Only cash is accepted for Yorktoberfest merchandise, wristbands, and beverage purchases. Some food vendors and band merchandise may offer the option to pay by credit card, but plan to use cash just in case. We will have an ATM on site from one of our valued sponsors, Midland States Bank.
