This fall, Breckenridge’s traditional Oktoberfest Main Street party will transform into the new elevated ticketed-event held at the iconic Riverwalk Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

This fall Breckenridge’s traditional Oktoberfest Main Street party will transform into the new elevated ticketed-event held at the iconic Riverwalk Center.

Will there still be a Main Street Party?

No. With the world’s largest folk festival in Munich still on pandemic hold, the Breckenridge community announces the new, but familiar event and Fall Family Fair happenings this September to sit in its place for the time being. Bringing Munich to the Rockies, celebrations are timed around one of North America’s earliest fall color viewing opportunities, September 23-26, 2021.

Where Should I Park?

While going carless is the easiest way to go, if you do need a car, we recommend parking at Airport Rd. and taking the bus in. The Breckenridge FreeRide bus system will service the Satellite Lot and Ice Rink lot on regular scheduling. Limited paid lots within town will be available for guest parking (F-Lot, East Sawmill, Tiger Dredge and Wellington lots), but will fill up quickly. For free overflow parking, guests can park at Colorado Community College on the north end of town with the FreeRide bus servicing this lot every 20 minutes throughout the day.
