This Season in Breckenridge: Five Fantastic Fall Festivals!

There’s nothing quite like autumn in the Colorado High Country. Yellowing aspens and changing foliage line our jagged mountains with vibrant colors. And although the lifts haven’t started turning yet, this season turns Downtown Breckenridge into a party-like atmosphere with some of the most popular events in the state making their way to Main Street. Here are the top five events to plan your Breck getaway or weekend out around.


Get your Polka party on at the highest Oktoberfest celebration in the United States! While Oktoberfest weekend is full of beer, there’s also live entertainment, games, a 5k, and all the German cuisine you can eat. This fall-favorite always takes place early- to mid-September, timed perfectly with yellowing aspens and fall foliage. Check out just how elaborate this festival is and get your Stein and beer tokens now so you can go prepared!

Service Industry Night

At Beaver Run Resort, we know firsthand how hard front line employees work. From our Front Desk Agents and Housekeepers to Bartenders and Servers – our industry wouldn’t last one day without the exemplary work of those in the Hospitality and Food Service industries. Beyond Beaver Run, these are the people who keep our ski town turning. If you work in a restaurant, hotel or bar, we want to thank you. Come and join us every Sunday and Monday at Base Nine Bar from 9-11 for a special $2 You-Call-It (on well drinks and domestic beers) happy hour!

Wine Classic

Wine down in mountain town with eclectic wine & food pairings, educational seminars, outdoor activities, and a massive Grand Tasting filled with live music, pop-up seminars and other festivities. This event offers a wide array of experiences throughout town and mountain to give you a full taste of Breckenridge (in addition to samplings from more than 30 wineries). Beaver Run is offering a special rate to get you to the event - and when you stay with us, you can access all of it easily by foot or complimentary shuttle. Valid on stays 9/11-9/22.
