The days are already getting cooler and the kids are going back to school.

Vail Oktoberfest is just around the corner! It’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over. But, with the ending of summer comes the fun Fall events and eventually winter, and skiing. 2 weekends of Oktoberfest kicks off on Friday, September 9th in Lionshead village and goes through Sunday, September 11th. Featuring live music, food and of course beer, the event is always a great time. On Friday, September 16th Oktoberfest will move to Vail Village and the music and fun will continue. Bring the family out and enjoy 2 weekends of celebrating fall!
