Denver Oktoberfest returns to the Mile High City on September 20-22 and September 27-29, 2019 for two epic weekends of cold German-style brews, racing wiener dogs, and plenty of grilled brats loaded with sauerkraut.

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the largest Oktoberfests in the country, bringing in over 250,000 attendees every year. Wear your best Bavarian outfit while enjoying authentic German cuisine featuring schnitzel, spätzle, currywurst, bratwurst, potato salad, and much more. The festivities will kick off with a ceremonial tapping of the first keg at 2:00 p.m., followed by popular Stein Hoisting contests, tricycle racing, keg bowling, live music, dancing, and wiener dog races.
