Oktoberfest is postponed until 2021, but fest organizers are still offering a taste of the celebration with activities like the 2020 Oktoberfest USA Medallion Hunt.

Starting Monday, one clue will be released per day at around 7:00 a.m. on the Oktoberfest USA’s Facebook, Instagram, and website. There are 10 clues prepared.

Whoever finds the prized medallion will earn $500 cash and a swag basket full of Altra Federal Credit Union and Oktoberfest goods. The back side of the medallion includes a contact name and number to report that it has been found.

Oktoberfest USA asked all medallion hunters to respect public and private property and their fellow hunters while trying to locate the medallion. In addition to not damaging foliage while searching for the medallion, organizers ask all medallion hunters to follow local and national guidance regarding COVID-19 precautions.
