Munich comes to the streets of Vail in September for the world’s greatest celebration of beer, music and autumn: Oktoberfest! Dust off the lederhosen, throw on the dirndls and toast your steins to the world’s most popular party. Oktoberfest’s dual celebration weekends will happen in Lionshead Sept. 5-7 and Vail Village Sept. 12-14.
Emulating the more than 200-year-old celebration known by millions around the world, Vail’s Oktoberfest will delight guests for two whole weekends with Bavarian music and dancing, traditional fare, yodeling, alpenhorn blowing, Bavarian beverages and much more. Oktoberfest 2014 will see the return of many crowd favorites like bratwurst eating contests, Keg Bowling and the Oktoberfest Fun Run.
See Vail’s own Helmut Fricker playing traditional (and not so traditional) tunes on the accordion and alpenhorn in full traditional German attire! A crowd favorite for years and not to be missed.
