Why was the Colorado Springs OktoberFest created?
Colorado Springs is a center of global travel and it was long over due to celebrate an integral part of American culture, that being German and Bavarian culture! Bavaria has celebrated OktoberFest for over two hundred years ago, bringing millions to the grounds for beer, food, and community!
In 2011, we decided that German culture deserved its place in Colorado Springs. We have worked to bring an authentic experience through food, Warsteiner Beer, and German music! Join us for our best year yet, where admission is free! Parking is $10.
How much does it cost to get in?
ADMISSION IS FREE!
The 2018 Colorado Springs Oktoberfest is a free experience for guests and patrons to attend. However, we do charge a $10 Parking Fee to help cover expenses! So load up the car & come on out!
We do offer Warsteiner Beer on site as well as limited print, Commemorative Steins and merchandise. Food and drink from multiple vendors will be available for purchase on site! Both cash and card are excepted, exceptions apply; ATMs will be on site if you don’t have any more room in your lederhosen!
Are coolers or outside food allowed?
No. Unfortunately, outside food and beverages of any sort are not allowed into the Colorado Springs OktoberFest! Besides who would want to miss out on the tasty authentic food and freshly poured drinks we have on-site?
Are pets allowed?
No. Unless your Dachshund is registered in the 2018 Dachshund Dash, all furry-four-legged friends will be turned away. Participants must be kept on a leash or harness unless they are racing. Registration for the race can be done on this website or in person. Dogs are raced based on age, and race until a winner is declared in each age group. We reserve the right to ask unruly pups and their humoms and dads to leave the premises if behavior warrants such action.
Can we bring tents or chairs?
You don’t need to! We provide a massive main tent and several others to shelter you, friends, and family and it will save you from having to carry it all in and out.
Who can I call if I have more Questions?
