Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest

August 30th - 31st, 2014

Beaver Creek's 15th annual Oktoberfest returns with foot stompin' oom-pah-pah music, unbeatable beer and wunderbar wurst! Enjoy complimentary live entertainment in Beaver Creek Plaza all weekend and be sure to take advantage of great lodging packages for the event. It’s the perfect time to be outdoors and hike, bike, play a round of golf and celebrate Oktoberfest in Beaver Creek.

Musical highlights include Trachtenkapelle from our sister city in Austria, Lech Zurs and Beaver Creek’s very own Helmut Fricker! Once again, guests of all ages will have the chance to compete in the Bavarian Costume Contest on Saturday. On Sunday, kids will be able to showcase their musical talents at Centennial Park during the Kids’ European Alpenhorn contest.

A Kids’ Fun Zone will be open from 11-4PM on Saturday and Sunday providing activities, arts and crafts designed for kids 12 and under.

Come show off your Bavarian style on Saturday, August 30th. Sign up at the red Guest Services tent between 12:00 - 12:30pm to be considered. Spaces are limited so make sure to get there and sign up early. All participants must be present in front of the main stage at 4pm for judging.

Trachtenkapelle (from Lech, Austria): The Lech Town Band! 
The Lech Town Band is comprised of a group of musicians, spanning all ages. As in any town band they play an integral part in the cultural and entertainment life of Lech - from the regular series of summer outdoor concerts to church festivities and ceremonies, to their annual gala concert, and to our renowned musical festivals. Their repertoire consists mainly of traditional Austrian and Bohemian band music; marches, polkas and waltzes. However, every once in a while contemporary sounds do escape. 


The Helmut Fricker Band 
Clad in lederhosen and toting an accordion or alpenhorn, Helmut has continued to entertain visitors at Beaver Creek since the resort opened in 1980, yodeling and cracking jokes. Helmut Fricker is an icon in Beaver Creek and we always look forward to the entertainment of the Helmut Fricker Band.
