Breckenridge’s 18th annual Oktoberfest, September 14-16, 2012, includes a fun-filled weekend of fall foliage, great parties, Paulaner Bier, genuine German cuisine, collectable steins and special accommodation packages. Don’t miss the largest Oktoberfest in the Rocky Mountains.
The town’s 18th annual Oktoberfest, where Munich meets Breckenridge on Friday, Saturday and Sunday when Main Street closes and comes to life as a street party with traditional costumes, German food, Oompah and polka music, Bavarian dancers, children’s activities, a keg-tapping ceremony, 5k run and, of course, Paulaner bier.
The Main Street Party features more than two dozen food vendors, lots of dancing and a weekend of fun. Due to the extensive food and beverage offerings, we ask that you please leave your best four legged friends at home as well as any outside alcoholic beverages. Don’t forget your ID though.
If you can’t make it to Breckenridge you still have a chance to “visit” Munich in the streets of Vail. Oktoberfest returns to Vail for two full weekends of Bavarian fun Sept. 7-9 in Lionshead and Sept. 14-16 in Vail Village.
Emulating the more than 200-year-old celebration known by millions around the world, Vail’s Oktoberfest will delight guests for two whole weekends with Bavarian music and dancing, traditional fare, yodeling, alpenhorn blowing, beverages from Beck’s and much more. Oktoberfest 2012 will see the return of many crowd favorites like bratwurst eating contests, Beck’s Keg Bowling and the Oktoberfest Fun Run.
See Vail's own Helmut Fricker playing traditional (and not so traditional) tunes on the accordion and alpenhorn in full traditional German attire! A crowd favorite for years and not to be missed.
