The most wonderful time of the year is approaching, and we’re not talking about the holidays! Oktoberfest in Breckenridge is back in 2019 for another year of brews, music, food, and sunshine. Mark your calendars for September 6-9th and join us on Main Street in Breckenridge for the biggest street party in the Rocky Mountains.
Although known for its boozy focus, there are many other activities that patrons can partake in, such as traditional German games, Oompah and polka dancing, delicious German food, and dressing up in traditional Bavarian lederhosen. Test your skills in a game of Hammerschlagan and end the day with a heaping plate of schnitzel.
