Celebrating the final days of summer in the Rockies, Oktoberfest returns to Beaver Creek Resort with free entertainment on September 4 and 5 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Beaver Creek Village. Unforgettable Fire, a U2 tribute band, headlines the music lineup starting at 4:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday nights. The annual Oktoberfest Shuffle, a 5 km, 10 km or the Family 1 km race, is held Saturday, September 4 at 10 a.m.

Along with unbeatable beer and wunderbar wurst, Beaver Creek serves up foot stomping oom-pah-pah music featuring the Helmut Fricker Band and Trachtenkapelle from Beaver Creek's sister resort in Lech Zurs, Austria.

Helmut Fricker, shown here with a different band, will play this weekend at Beaver Creek's Oktoberfest celebration.

Dress in your best Oktoberfest gear for the Bavarian Costume Contest on Saturday at 4 p.m. and test your musical talents in the annual children's alpenhorn contest on Sunday at 2 p.m. Get there early to sign up as spaces are limited.

The morning of September 4, the Oktoberfest Shuffle kicks off with a 5 km, 10 km or the Family 1 km race across the scenic trails of Beaver Creek Mountain with a pre-registration price of $25 or day-of price of $35. Children 12 and younger participate for free. All proceeds benefit the Bright Future Foundation, a non-profit working to empower individuals and families to lead safe, productive lives through advocacy, crisis intervention, and mentoring.

For guests looking to spend a weekend in lederhosen, lodging packages are available starting from just $78 per person per night. A merchant sidewalk sale also will take place throughout weekend and parking is free in Beaver Creek Village for the summer.
