When the leaves turn gold and blue skies turn crisp, it's time for Ouray's Oktoberfest! Every first Saturday in October, Ouray welcomes fall with a family-friendly celebration.
2019 Oktoberfest: Saturday, October 5, 2019, 5-9 PM, Ouray Community Center, 320 6th Avenue, Ouray, CO 81427
Break out your dirndls and lederhosen and join us at the Ouray Community Center for polka fun and sing-alongs with the Austrian Connection, authentic German brats, potato salad & sauerkraut, door prizes, kids' activities, costume and Stein hoisting competitions.
At 5 PM the party starts at the Ouray Community Center. Tickets are $5 for adults (free for kids 17 and under) and include a Ouray cup and 5 door prize tickets for special Ouray-inspired prizes throughout the night.
Bring the whole family - we have a kids' area with fall activities set up and managed by the Ouray School, plus we love to see the whole family dancing and singing along with the incredible Austrian Connection band.
Brats, potato salad, sauerkraut, homemade desserts and a variety of beverages will be available for purchase inside the event.
Wear your best German-inspired outfit for a chance at the costume prize (Man, Woman & Child) and bring a strong arm if you want to enter the Stein hoisting competition (limited to 15 entrants, sign up inside the event).
While we won’t be raffling off this year’s Ouray Raffle Jeep until Yule Night (December 7), tickets for the Jeep Raffle will also be available at the event.
