It’s time to break out your lederhosen and oversized steins again! It’s time for Breckenridge’s 19th annual Oktoberfest celebration taking place next weekend, September 13th – 15th. Last year the powers that be decided to extend the party to 3 days starting the festivities on Friday. This year they are continuing the tradition so come up early and enjoy the extra day.
Oktoberfest is Breckenridge’s largest street party where Main Street closes and is lined with booths brimming with traditional German food. There is music, dancing, Paulinar Bier and more. Breckenridge comes to life with traditional costumes, German food, Oompah and polka music, Bavarian dancers, children’s activities, a keg-tapping ceremony, 5k run and, of course, did we mention Paulaner Bier.
The party starts next Friday the 13th at 2 p.m. and goes until 6 p.m. On Saturday for those interested in a little morning exercise there is a 5k trail run at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning. Don’t worry! You can get back to drinking right after as the Main Street Party starts at 11 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
Don’t forget to get your stein sooner than later. Steins generally sell out before Sunday and they will not get more. Oktoberfest is a no pet event so please leave the critters at home.
