18th Annual Beaver Creek Oktoberfest September 2-3 
Unique for ties to its sister city of Lech-Zurs in Austria, Beaver Creek reveals the resort’s authentic spirit and European roots during the 18th Annual Beaver Creek Oktoberfest. Live musical performances from Austria’s Trachtenkapelle and the Helmut Fricker Band are true nods to Beaver Creek’s heritage. Festive energy, music, and cheer permeate the Beaver Creek Village throughout the weekend, as do the savory aromas of bratwurst and hops. Festival guests heft commemorative artisan Beaver Creek Oktoberfest beer steins and sing along with newfound friends donning hand-crafted lederhosen and dirndls.

Hike to the Mic September 15 – 17
2017 marks the inaugural Beaver Creek Hike to the Mic – a one-of-a-kind music destination, perched high atop Beaver Creek's Centennial Express Chairlift, complete with a sweeping panorama of the surrounding mountain ranges. The only thing more unique than the setting is the journey. Arrive at a lofty 10,200 feet on our pristine hiking and biking paths or kick your adventure up a notch with a 4x4 jeep tour. Not in the market for an adventure? Just hop on the Centennial Express Combination Lift for a scenic ride to the venue. No matter how you arrive, you’ll be treated to incredible views. But for those who choose to hike, we’ve added a little extra inspiration along the way. The official Hike to the Mic trail will feature art installations and photo ops, influenced by the natural setting, tucked away in various locations along the journey. The festivities continue all weekend long in Beaver Creek Village with art exhibitions, restaurant specials, live music, outdoor yoga, shopping and more.
