Winstock 2017 Contests

Medallion Hunt – NEW for 2017!
(NOTE: The Medallion Hunt is replacing the campsite decorating contest)

Winstock Country Music Festival thanks Midwest Machinery for sponsoring the Medallion Hunt and providing the cash prize of $300!

Winstock ‘17 medallion hunt clues will be posted beginning at 2 p.m. Friday, June 9 at the Winstock Information Tent, on the big screens at Winstock, via Winstock’s mobile app, and on all social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram).

A new clue will appear every two hours through 6 p.m. Friday, June 9, unless the medallion is found prior to that time. Clues will resume Saturday, June 10 at 10 a.m. in the same manner through 6 p.m., or until the medallion is found. The Winstock medallion will be hidden in a public area of the Winstock concert bowl. The medallion will NOT be hidden in the VIP or Reserved Seating areas, the campgrounds, or backstage or in any non-public areas. There is no digging or climbing needed or allowed in order to find the medallion.

If you find the Winstock medallion, PROMPTLY return it to the Winstock Information Tent, with a valid I.D., to qualify for the cash prize. Winstock will recognize one winner with one prize. If the finder chooses to share the prize award with a group, it will be his or her responsibility.

If the Winstock ‘17 medallion is not found by 9 p.m. Saturday, June 10, 2017, Winstock reserves the right to terminate the hunt.

Winstock also reserves the right to discontinue the hunt at any time if property is damaged.
