Don’t try to wrestle it into something logical. It’s just Oktoberfest. In September. The 8th-10th to be exact. On Main Street. In Breckenridge. Oh, by the way- it’s great. One of the largest Oktoberfest celebrations in the Rocky Mountains, the Breckenridge Oktoberfest marries festival-style outdoor drinking (reportedly 8,000 gallons of beer and wine are poured!) with family fun and live music, and exists in that space when time stands still and life seems free of consequences.

It’s always high-spirited, well attended and there are snacks that consist of meat on sticks.
