Fun, Food, Fall Colors, Friends, Family, Festivities…. And Beer!
Celebrate the season at a Steamboat-style Oktoberfest with music, food, beer, games and activities for kids and adults, chef competition and much more.
The event will kickoff Friday night with the Pedaling Posse Parade in Steamboat Springs' historic downtown leading patrons to their favorite
restaurants for the Suds & Grub event with beer tastings and food specials.
Saturday is packed with entertainment for everyone in the family. Admission to the event is FREE. Embrace the true OktoberWest spirit with the I Love Beef Cook-Off. Vote on your favorite Steamboat restaurant and sample the best of Colorado beef.
Burgess Creek is flowing and the festivities will surround the new promenade. The kids will have fun trying their hand at roping with the Ranch Roundup games, or playing at the Gondola Adventure Zone. Enjoy a refreshing beer during the free concerts (bands TBA).
