This fall, Breckenridge’s traditional Oktoberfest Main Street party will dramatically downsize into Brecktoberfest, a collection of six ticketed sessions (two per day) at the Riverwalk Center and outside lawn. With two entry times per day, the Riverwalk will mimic a full-blown Munich celebration with live music from The Polkanauts, enough fall-themed beer and cuisine to put anyone in the “Prost!” spirit, and fall colors providing the ultimate backdrop.

How Is This Year Different?

  • Brecktoberfest is a ticketed event, with limited tickets sold.
  • Tickets include a reserved 3hr session, 1 half-liter stein & 2 beer tokens.
  • There is no Oktoberfest street party or Main Street closure.
  • Reservations and entry for this event is limited to those who are 21 and older.
  • Proof of vaccination or negative covid test is required by Breckenridge Creative Arts to enter the Riverwalk Center.  View Policy.
  • The new Fall Family Fair area will be held in Breckenridge’s Creative Arts District for family arts, crafts and programming.
