After only 4 clues, Amy Ellingson found the 2020 Oktoberfest Medallion Thursday morning under a pavilion pole at Bluffview Park!
This year there will not be the usual press conference, however WIZM News has more info and an interview planned for later today!


Oktoberfest USA has unfortunately had to cancel most of their main events but there’s still few that are able to happen safely for our community. One tradition is back again this year and finding the medallion could score you $500 cash! Clues will be released at 7am daily until it is found.

Clue #1 (Monday, 9/14/20)

Clue #2 (Tuesday, 9/15/20)

Clue #3 (Wednesday, 9/16/20)

Clue #4 (Thursday, 9/17/20)


Ten clues have been prepared and will be shared in order until the medallion is found or all ten are used (whichever comes first).

Prizes awaiting the person finding the medallion include: $500 cash, and a swag basket full of Altra Federal Credit Union & Oktoberfest goods. The backside of the medallion includes a contact name and number to report that it has been found.

Medallion Hunt rules are similar to previous years. The 2020 Oktoberfest Medallion:
– Is always located within the La Crosse city limits
– Is never buried in the ground
– Is always on public property
– Is accessible 24 hours, but posted hours should be observed
– Fits in the palm of a hand
– May be camouflaged
Oktoberfest USA requests that all medallion hunters respect public and private property (as well as their fellow hunters) while trying to locate the medallion. In addition to not damaging foliage while searching for the medallion, we ask that all medallion hunters follow local and national guidance regarding COVID-19 precautions.
