Colorado Oktoberfests, a comprehensive list

PLEASE NOTE: THESE DATES ARE FOR 2011 – GO TO THE FESTIVAL’S WEBSITE FOR THE 2012 DATES

Like many people in the United States, Coloradoans have a lot of German blood. Many of these immigrants came by way of Russia. If you don’t know that story, check out the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia – fascinating stuff.

However, you aren’t here for a history lesson! You are here to discover where to find the perfect brat, where to practice your German, and where to find good beer in a over-sized mug.

You are in luck!  Thanks to help from the German American Chamber of Commerce – Colorado Chapter, I have compiled a list of Oktoberfests taking place all over Colorado in 2011.
