September 2022 Summit & Park County Community Insider

Welcome to the September edition of our Summit & Park County Community Insider. We hope that everyone was able to enjoy a relaxing Labor Day weekend! Summer is coming to a close in the Rockies and the cooler weather is perfect for hiking, biking, fishing, or just enjoying the patio of a local restaurant. There are even a few events taking place to mark the change of seasons!

Get ready to end summer on the highest note at the 2nd annual Union Peak Festival at Copper Mountain. A convergence of community, sport, and art is on the way September 9-11. With free, live musical performances by artists including X Ambassadors, Cold War Kids, AJR, Jukebox the Ghost, and DURRY, plus live art, food demonstrations, and complimentary sports clinics, this new festival is set to be the ultimate celebration of the mountain athlete. The event is free but you can purchase VIP tickets as well! 

Frisco also hosts a fun art-focused fall festival this Saturday and Sunday in the Frisco Historic Park. You can kick-off the fall season and peruse local and regional art at the Arts at Altitude art show (curated by the Summit County Arts Council). There will also be live music and make-and-take art projects for all ages. Ein Prosit will be serving up pretzels and sausage and the adults can enjoy the beer garden featuring German beer (and it benefits the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District). 

Breckenridge Oktoberfest

One of the most treasured Oktoberfest events in the state of Colorado returns this month with a three-day celebration in beautiful and historic downtown Breckenridge! Running from September 23 – 25, the 26th annual Breckenridge Oktoberfest mixes time-honored Oktoberfest traditions with collectible steins and local flavors from this year’s vendors and sponsors. 

Over the course of the weekend, you’ll be able to sample wine, cocktails, and several styles of beer, including the signature Oktoberfest brew from Breckenridge Brewery. The event is returning to a full-blown Munich-style street party, so expect plenty of live music, food vendors, and German beer! And it all takes place with breathtaking views of the Ten Mile Range as a backdrop. 

Here’s the “need-to-know” information if you plan to attend this year’s celebration:

  • No Pets Allowed. Sorry, the four-legged family members have to stay home. 
  • It’s kid-friendly! Families with small children can visit the Riverwalk Center lawn on Friday, 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., to enjoy a bounce house, face painting, and more.
  • All stein and token sales must be purchased with a credit or debit card. Most food vendors will accept cash but keep in mind all beer and wine tents only accept tokens. You can purchase a stein or tokens in advance, just click here!!
  • Parking… downtown parking lots are paid and usually fill up quickly. The most convenient parking will be in the South Gondola Parking Structure at 150 Watson Avenue.
