VAIL — Raise your stein and say “Prost!” at the Sonnenalp Oktoberfest, an authentic Bavarian Oktoberfest celebration happening at the Sonnenalp Hotel today from 3 to 9 p.m.
The Sonnenalp is collaborating with Hofbrau to transform the front of the hotel into an authentic German beer hall, bringing the energy and charm of Munich straight into the heart of Vail. Live Bavarian music from Those Austrian Guys and authentic fare from the Swiss Chalet will be the highlights of the event.
‘Sure to be a wonderful time’
“We are excited to get a head start on the Oktoberfest season in Vail,” said Johannes Faessler, owner of the Sonnenalp Hotel. “It’s sure to be a wonderful time for the whole family.”
