Breckenridge Oktoberfest is the large beer and German culture festival taking place in Colorado mountains every September. The traditional harvest celebration features over three dozens of German food and brews vendors, German games like Hammerschlagan and Bavarian lederhosen, Oompah, polka dancing and activities for all ages. Thousands of people are drawn by beautiful fall foliage in the Rocky Mountains, fantastic parties, Paulaner Beer and authentic German treats. The Main Street of Breckenridge gets closed for traffic to host a street party with Bavarian dancers, a keg-tapping ceremony, and other fun activities.
Other activities of the Oktoberfest weekend also include Oktoberfest 5K Trail Run and the Annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest Hockey Tournament which hosts over 30 men’s and women’s adult hockey teams. There is also a USS Strongman Competition with competitors deadlifting cars, carry kegs, and lifting boulders.
