The season of colored leaves and sweaters on the patio is right around the corner. Before we know it, October will be upon us. Leaves will be crunching under our feet as we shield ourselves from that brisk fall wind as we finally venture outside after a summer full of adventure. What bliss is the chill in the air that October brings! There’s no better way to rejoice in all that there is to celebrate this time of year than kicking off the season with the Vail Oktoberfest.
This year’s Vail Oktoberfest will take place in Vail Village, where La Tour is located, starting September 18 and run through September 20. Come out and partake in the consumption of delicious foods and beverages as well participate in games, contests, and live music and dances. There is something here for every member of the family. To make it even better, Vail Oktoberfest is free and open to the public! There is no reason not to come experience one of the largest fall celebrations.
The party kicks off at noon with a Friday Afternoon Club oom-pah style, followed by the Ceremonial Hacker-Pschorr Keg tapping event. Vail Oktoberfest will have similar Bavarian themed events, demonstrations, and contests that will include music, dancing, yodeling, and alpenhorn blowing. The headlining act at this year’s event will be the legendary Helmut Fricker and the Rhinelanders Band. Festival goers can also try authentic Bavarian food and beverages including Klement’s bratwursts, pretzels, beverages from Hacker-Pschorr, Jägermeister and more! There will be plenty of new foods and beverages to go around.
Don’t miss this incredible festival! Local lodges will be offering spectacular deals all weekend long for this special event. Vail Oktoberfest can only be experienced once a year and it is too fun to pass up. So book your rooms before they fill up, and come out and celebrate music, food, beer, and fall with this festival where cultures combine. Bring the whole family out to this weekend-long event where they will all be entertained.
