We still have a few good weeks of summer weather left in the Vail Valley, so it’s time to tick off the final boxes on your summer “to do” list!

The whitewater rafting, dance festivals and concert series may be winding down, but there is still much to be done.  The Log Cabin Nottingham Lake in Avon will be open until Labor Day, so there is still a chance to get in some fishing or paddle boating. You can still saddle up a horse at Beaver Creek Stables through the end of September.  Cooling weather for Vail Valley hikers, mountain bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts to cram in a few more adventures.  And of course, the beginning of autumn means the return of Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is a particularly popular holiday in our resort communities – not surprising given those communities’ Alpine roots.  A traditional Bavarian celebration for the coming of autumn, both Vail and Beaver Creek hold annual Oktoberfest celebrations as the aspens begin to tun.

Beaver Creek’s 15th annual Oktoberfest returns August 30-31st. Enjoy “foot-stompin’ oom-pah-pah music, unbeatable beer and wunderbar wurst!”  Highlights include the music of Trachtenkapelle from Lech Zurs, Austria, a kids fun zone and Bavarian-inspired demonstrations from local chefs.  Of course, it wouldn’t be Beaver Creek’s Octoberfest without the musical and comic talent of local celebrity Helmut Fricker!
