It's time to dust off the lederhosen, throw on the dirndls and toast your steins to the most popular party in the world: Oktoberfest! The yearly festival of beer, music and autumn returns to Vail September 10-12 and 17-19.

The Town of Vail will host two full weekends (that's six incredible days!) of oom-pah parties, lively activities and traditional German fare in world-famous Vail, Colorado.

Bavarian tunes will be ever present along with crowd favorites like the Klement's bratwurst-eating contest, Beck's keg bowling, yodeling and alpenhorn blowing. It's all part of the six days of blown-out Bavarian fun!

An exclusive lodging package, starting at just $199 per night (based on double occupancy), includes luxurious accommodations at the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail, two official Vail Oktoberfest beer steins with six tokens in each and discounted parking. Packages are available for a limited time and based on availability.
