Breckenridge Oktoberfest

 

If you love beer and genuine German cuisine, then come join Breckenridge for their 22nd Annual Oktoberfest on September 9th-11th! It is the largest Oktoberfest street party in the Rocky Mountains. Main Street will be overflowing with over three-dozen German cuisine and brew vendors, lots of Bavarian lederhosen dancing, schnitzel and sausages! If you love to have a good time, then you will not want to miss out on this annual event!

Oktoberfest-300x224Friday, September 9th: Kicks off the start of the Oktoberfest weekend! Beer, food, music and dancing will all start at 2pm. Around 6:30 pm the Brewmaster Dinner begins. Make sure to buy your tickets in advance because it has been sold out the past four years! It is a multi-course meal elegantly paired with Paulaner bier or fine wines. This is going to be taking place at Ten Mile Station, making it one outstanding on-mountain dining experience.

Saturday, September 10th: Come be a part of the 15th Annual Oktoberfest 5K at 10 am! Whether you are in it to race or just to watch, it is still an amazing experience. There will be changing aspens and breathtaking scenery throughout the run. The race is open to 200 runners, so sign up as soon as possible. Afterwards is a Breckenridge Brunch at Breck Brewery and then the party on Main Street starts up again. Make sure to buy your stein ASAP; they go fast!

Oktoberfest would not be possible without the help of volunteers. In order to make it happen they need people willing to help out with setting up, pouring/serving beer and selling steins and drink tokens. If you are kind enough to help out, you will receive a half liter Oktoberfest Stein and two drink tokens. Sign up today!

Now, that you are up-to-date with Breckenridge’s Oktoberfest, there is no reason not to be there. It will be an unforgettable experience that will be having you want to come back every year!
