The weekend is full of, you guessed it, beer, but we didn’t forget about those under the drinking age. Breckenridge Oktoberfest is full of entertainment for everyone; make sure to visit face-painting stations, get some pre-festival exercise at the 5k run and test your skills at a wide variety of German themed games, including the poplar Hammerschlagen. Do your homework and read the Okoberfest insider guide on the Breck Connection to prepare for the memorable weekend ahead.

Timed accordingly during the most scenic time to visit Breckenridge, vivid yellow Aspen trees make up the breathtaking fall foliage and surrounds the Wiesn celebration. Make it a weekend-long mountain getaway and explore the popular Aspen tunnels on the surrounding trails throughout Breck. The Breck Connection has already planned the perfect fall itinerary just for you. You’re welcome. Keep your eyes pealed for special Oktoberfest lodging packages. Take our word on this one; you won’t want to miss this party.

Due to the extensive food and beverage offerings, we ask that you please leave your four legged friends at home as well as any outside alcoholic beverages. Oktoberfest patrons must be 21 to consume the wide variety of beverages offered, don’t forget your ID if you plan on partaking.

PROST! That means “cheers” in German.
