Where to find an Oktoberfest celebration in Colorado in 2016

 

The original "Oktoberfest" occurred in Munich, Kingdom of Bavaria, on October 18, 1810: For the commemoration of their marriage, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds) organized a great horse race (the marriage took place on October 12; the horse race on October 17—therefore, there are different dates named as being the first Oktoberfest). Colorado communities, with their strong German influence dating back to the gold rush days of 1859, also celebrate Oktoberfest at many locations.
