OktoberWest Starts Today in Steamboat!
Today starts the 3rd annual OktoberWest here in Steamboat Springs, CO. It is your chance to celebrate Oktoberfest, mountain style. From Rocky Mountain beer to a bike parade, Germany has nothing on Steamboat ‘s OktoberWest. Let’s just hope the rain holds off so we can enjoy all the outdoor activities.
Today, OktoberWest rides into town starting with Suds & Grub, a cruiser bike parade through historic downtown with frequent stops at restaurants for beer tastings and food specials. On Saturday the festivities continue at the base area with themed activities such as a bucking mechanical bull battle, cruiser bike decoration competition, free concerts, the lamb cook–off and more. The fun concludes on Sunday with an OktoberWest luncheon buffet at the top of the gondola. This weekend is also the last weekend the Gondola is open until the ski season begins in November.
