Schell’s Bock Fest takes place outdoors on the grounds of Schell’s brewery. Enjoy an award-winning beer or root beer beside a big bonfire and a few thousand friends. The highlight of the day is the Bock Medallion Hunt, when participants use clues to find the “bocks” (a gruff and stubborn goat of winter), to win cash and merchandise prizes. For more details, visit Schell’s website or the Bock Fest event page on Facebook.
Be safe when attending Bock Fest and don’t drink and drive! There are two free shuttle buses that will be making continuous loops from 9AM – Midnight. Catch a ride and take in other happening around town! The downtown is always hopping before and after Bock Fest, and there are after-parties at both the New Ulm Event Center and Green Mill/Best Western Plus. View Event Calendar online for more entertainment options!
And on Sunday morning, when you need a good breakfast – head to the Dad’s Belgian Waffle Brunch benefiting our local Lions Club! “All You Can Eat” Waffles, Breakfast Sausages, 9 different Flavored Syrups and Whipped Cream. Coffee, Milk and Juice are all included!
Coming to Bock Fest and can’t find a hotel room in New Ulm? Catch the MN Beer Bus from Mankato or Maple Plain!
