Celebrate Oktoberfest with Our Frisco Lodging
Posted by: admin September 3rd, 2014
September can be one of the most rewarding times of year to visit Summit County. Clear, warm days give way to a crisp chill when the sun goes down, but perhaps one of the area’s marquee events celebrates the last bastion of summer before the snow starts falling – Breckenridge’s 20th Annual Oktoberfest, September 12-14th in downtown Breckenridge (Yes, I know that this is Oktoberfest in September, but believe me, you would not want to spend long periods of time outside in October). Just 15 minutes from Breckenridge, a stay at our Frisco lodging will help you escape the crowds while providing a nice quiet retreat from the madness we know as Oktoberfest.
This event literally closes down Main Street Breckenridge for the weekend as locals and visitors alike enjoy a fun-filled holiday of fall foliage, great parties, Paulaner Bier and genuine German cuisine in what is the largest Oktoberfest in the Rocky Mountains. Tabbed as “where Munich meets Breckenridge,” Main Street comes to life as a street party with traditional costumes, food, music, dancers, children’s activities, a 5k run and of course beer, and more beer!
Take advantage of the free on-site guest parking and world-class amenities at our Frisco lodging and utilize the free Summit Stage bus service to get you to and fro (less than 2 bocks away from the Frisco Lodge). And, after you are done getting in touch with your inner German, why not retreat down the hill and take advantage of our hot tub, outdoor fireplace and/or BBQ grill in our award-winning courtyard? It’s the best of both worlds!
In fact, why not make it an even more memorable weekend and be treated like royalty? In addition to the Frisco Lodge’s world-class amenities, you can immerse yourself into Oktoberfest like you never have before with the Oktoberfest VIP experience. Limited to the first 100 people, on September 13th you can register as a VIP and receive a ½ litre commemorative Oktoberfest stein, 4 beer/wine tickets, VIP beer/wine pour and access to the private tent equipped with food vouchers and snacks.
One of the other highlights of the Breckenridge Oktoberfest is the prestigious Brewmaster’s Dinner happening on Friday, September 12 at 6:30pm at Beaver Run Resort’s Spencer’s Restaurant. Enjoy a multi-course meal paired with European biers and wines. This year, the menu is nothing short of impressive with beer-brined smoked Angus beef sirloin and German apple fritter and salted caramel truffnies. This event sells out fast, so make sure to reserve your spot well in advance.
So help our Frisco lodging and Summit County in its entirety say farewell to summer with the largest party in the Rockies. Book your room now and know that you have a place to lay your head at the end of your festive day!
