Two new events added in just two years – plus lodging discounts during this “shoulder” season: fall in Breckenridge, Colorado, offers much more than colors and cool temps.
The Fall for the Arts lets travelers of all ages take part in fine – and fun – art in the Breckenridge Arts District and the Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival celebrates the nationally-booming handmade spirits industry.
This historic mining town delivers on end-of-summer family fun and unique fall festivals.
The Fall for the Arts from September 9 to 11 includes children’s theater, teen workshops, art walks (and bikes, in true Breck style), open studios and much more, which means artists of all ages have an entire weekend to pursue fine – and fun – art throughout Summit County.
Bid farewell to summer on Labor Day Weekend (September 2 to 5)with the challenge of a mountain trail run, the relaxation of a wine festival or the fun of a fundraiser rubber duck race. Sidewalk Sale Days lets gear junkies get great prices on summer favorites and the 36th annual Great Divide Arts Festival features more than 100 artists.
Breckenridge Oktoberfest will this year (from September 16 to 18) offer new entertainment, VIP package and additional beer-pouring capabilities at the growing event. In its 17th year, Breck’s Oktoberfest brings a weekend of parties, German cuisine and plenty of Paulaner bier. Combine it all at one of the fest’s top parties, the Brewmaster’s Dinner, which features a different beer or wine paired with each of the six courses.
Craft distillers will gather in Breckenridge from October 7 to 9 for the second annual Craft Spirits Festival: Still on the Hill festival, which features a grand tasting, restaurant specials, a downtown pub crawl and historic saloon tours.
