Parker Oktoberfest

Hold on to your Lederhosen, it’s time for the 12th Annual Parker Oktoberfest!

This annual fundraising event is hosted by the Council of Arts, Science and Culture (CASC), benefitting local art and science projects within the Parker area. Oktoberfest’s German themed culture, entertainment, food and music draws between 15,000 – 25,000 participants to Parker annually. The event, which began in 2002, has become one of the largest events in Parker, second only to the Chamber of Commerce’s annual Parker Days celebration.

Parker’s Oktoberfest will host over 50 vendors, including three of Denver’s top German and Bavarian bakeries and Stryia. Enjoy live German music on the main stage, a Biergarten featuring presenting partner, Paulaner, Noch ein Bier, bitte!

Sign up to compete in some hilarious beer-relay games, or just relax and play some lawn games while enjoying a Schnitzel and a cold brew.

There are a few new additions to the program this year, including a German themed techno dance party Friday and Saturday night, and a “Grimm Weekend” featuring vignettes and special appearances from Grimm fairytale characters throughout the entire weekend. Watch actors compete for “The King’s Favor” a play about a contest between characters to win the King’s scroll. There’s also the hilarious Dachshund races and the quest to be crowned Ms. Oktoberfest in the pageant held Saturday afternoon.

Admission to this family-friendly, German-themed festival is FREE, and the event includes all the fun and games (and Biergartens) for adults as well as a kids area for the little one to enjoy activities and games provided by Oktoberfest sponsors.

Come for a evening or come back each day to play at the 12th Annual Parker Oktoberfest celebration in O’Brien Park. Prost!
