Over two centuries ago, a wedding in Munich, Germany, hosted the first Oktoberfest celebration. Days of drinking, feasting, and horse racing commenced this tradition we all know and love 200 years later. But, you don’t need to travel to Germany to celebrate beer; Oktoberfest events occur all over the world. One of these annual festivals is located right here in Snowbird, Utah. The Snowbird Oktoberfest attracts visitors from all over looking for traditional German-style beer. This influx of visitors can make it difficult to book a room in time. Luckily, at Canyon Services we offer dozens of vacation rentals away from the crowds at Snowbird. Join us for Oktoberfest from August 14th to October 17th, we’ll see you here!

Cheers to Beer!

There are over 50 varieties of beer offered at this year’s Oktoberfest. The festival includes traditional German-style beers and local Utah brews. Buy a mug or beer stein to sip on brews in true German style. The German influence doesn’t stop at beer; the food choices include German favorites such as bratwurst, weisswurst, apple strudel, spaetzle, beef rouladen, and pretzels. Cheers to beer from noon to 6 pm every Saturday and Sunday from mid-August through mid-October.

Music & Activities

You can hear traditional German-style music from two different stages any day you choose to attend the festival. You can find live music at the Oktoberfest Halle, Chickadee Stage, and on top of Hidden Peaks. Check out the full Oktoberfest entertainment schedule here. There are also a collection of vendor booths at der Marktplatz that features handmade arts and crafts from local artists. Listen to live music and take home a piece of local art when you visit the Snowbird Oktoberfest this year.
