Featured Festival: Loveland Oktoberfest, Sept. 13-14, 2019

‘Tis the season of Oktoberfest and I love it. There’s nothing better than beer, brats, sauerkraut and polka on a crisp fall day. Okay, fall actually doesn’t start until September 23, but there have already been a few brisk Colorado mornings this month.

New Location for Loveland Oktoberfest

This year, the crowd-favorite will be held at Loveland’s Fairground Park just south of downtown at 700 S. Railroad Avenue. The new location means rain and sun protection under the large pavilions at the old fairground and plenty of parking.

Das Bier

Something super exciting has happened this year. All of Loveland’s breweries, along with Root Shoot Malting, came together to brew “Liebsland Helles” a collaboration beer to be featured at Loveland Oktoberfest as well as on the Old Chicago Oktoberfest Minitour. There will be special tappings of the beer throughout the state but to ensure that you get a pint, come to Loveland Oktoberfest.

Liebsland means Loveland and Helles is a traditional German pale lager produced mainly in Southern Germany. The German word “hell” is translated as “bright”, “light” or “pale”. The name of the beer is Loveland Oktoberfest perfection and it will be an approachable style for the wide variety of people who attend the event.

In addition to Lieberland Helles, all of the breweries will be pouring their beer at this event so have your stein ready.

Die Musik

This year’s musical selection at this two-day event will be German polka bands, accordion players and DJ KAAOS on Saturday night. In a nod to Oktoberfest under the tents in Munich, DJ KAAOS will spin German rock, rap and folk that’s perfect for a German celebration under the stars.
