September is Oktoberfest Season in Vail Valley!
If you live in town or plan to be around Vail or Beaver Creek for the first three weekends in Spetember, why not treat yourself to some beer and polka music? There are three chances for you to get in on the action here in the Vail Valley, and each one worth a visit. The first stop is at Beaver Creek, where the village is turned into a Beer Garden for two full days of merriment. You’ll have a chance to burn off your beer calories on September 3rd in Beaver Creek with the Oktoberfest 5/10K Shuffle. On the following weekend, the celebration will take place in Lionshead, followed by a fun weekend event in Vail Village. Each location is known to draw a crowd.
Beaver Creek Oktoberfest: September 2-3 | Saturday & Sunday 11am- 6pm
Lionshead Oktoberfest: September 9 – 11 | Friday & Saturday 12pm- 10pm and Sunday 12pm- 6pm
Vail Village Oktoberfest: September 15-17 | Friday & Saturday 12PM – 10pm and Sunday 12pm – 6pm
From bratwurst eating contests to polka dancing in fuzzy hats, you can expect a wide range of events, plenty of live music, and delicious German cuisine served up by local businesses like AlpenRose. Children are allowed and admission is free. Beer and food is sold for wooden tokens, which can be bought at each event in multiple locations!
Try one weekend, or do all three, just don’t forget your leiderhosen!
