Families at Breckenridge Oktoberfest
There’s plenty of kid-sized fun at Oktoberfest! Breckenridge’s Oktoberfest typically sees the biggest crowds on Saturday; to avoid the most hectic times, local families tend to come out on Sundays, or even Friday afternoon. A family play area will be available all three days with a free bounce house and other paid activities will be located on the Riverwalk Center lawn (just across the river from the Welcome Center). It’s a great place for families to kick back and the parents can still hang on to their beer. And of course, a busy Saturday downtown means lots of freedom for families to check out the Epic Discovery experience or to hit local trails.
Buying Food and Getting Cash
Most food vendors accept CASH only. The closest ATMs are located at Downstairs at Eric’s (111 S. Main Street), Main Street Mall (311 S Main St, Breckenridge near Shirt and Ernies). Additional ATMs are available at nearby First Bank, US Bank, Alpine Bank and Bank of the West, as well as inside Fatty’s Pizzeria.
Beer vendors take tokens only. You can purchase beer tokens at the entrance tents with cash or card. Beer vendors will not be able to sell tokens or take cash.
