To help celebrate the Oktoberfest in a quality fashion, we designed two shirts exclusively for the festival, including a grey classic tee and a royal-blue football tee. Both shirts feature a subtle "3 Up 2 Up" Germanic font. The Bluefield City Park serves as the warm inviting backdrop for this theme. A perfect kickoff to the fall season "In the Park". 

These shirts are for preorder only and can be picked up at 621 Commerce St. in Bluefield, WV or at the Oktoberfest (the day of the festival). For more information, contact us at support@3up2up.com or the Mercer County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 304-325-8438 or email info@visitmercercounty.com
