If you can’t make the journey across the pond to Germany, no doubt the Vail Oktoberfest is the best stateside celebration.

For more than 25 years, the Bavarian-inspired town of Vail has created an Oktoberfest destination. Against the backdrop of the picturesque mountain setting, streets are lined with German beer steins, revelers in lederhosen and dirndls, Bavarian food, traditional Oktoberfest performers and dancers, and bands playing traditional Oktoberfest tunes.

Vail Oktoberfest returns for its two-weekend Bavarian extravaganza of competitions, contests, flowing German beer, German delicacies, traditional music and dance, children’s entertainment, and more. 

This free, family-friendly event, named among the 10 greatest Oktoberfest celebrations in the U.S. by USA Today, will be in Vail’s Lionshead Village Sept. 8-10 and Vail Village Sept. 15-17. Contests include World Keg Bowling Championship, Bratwurst Eating Contest, Stein Hoisting Competition, Costume Contest.
