While Breckenridge’s traditional Oktoberfest celebration is postponed until 2021, the newly announced oktober-FEAST is a nod toward the beloved beer festival and the historically sold out Brewmaster’s Dinner.

Over two back-to-back weekends, September 25-27 and October 2-4, oktober-FEAST will consist of local restaurant chefs choreographing memorable Bavarian-style mountain dining experiences by pairing several-course meals with imaginative libations sure to showcase their unique and playful take on traditional German dishes. The first weekend of oktober-FEAST will run simultaneously with the newly extended, pedestrian-friendly, Walkable Main allowing for ample outdoor dining opportunities.

oktober-FEAST will adhere to all public health and safety regulations required for Colorado. Reservations will be limited to eight per table and facial coverings are required when not eating or drinking.
