Games and contests will occur every hour, including a sausage toss, stein holding, relay races, and more! Merch and gift card prizes will be up for grabs!

Telluride Arts and Stronghouse Brew Pub’s Oktoberfest is a new Telluride tradition since 2021. Having hosted two successful events at the Transfer Warehouse, this iteration is moving to the Town Park “Bra” and “Oval” while construction gets underway at the Warehouse.
