Let’s take a look into what’s going on this weekend. We will give you the local tips on everything you need to know in order to enjoy Beaver Creek and Vail’s events just like a local.
Beaver Creek this Weekend:
Luxury Lifestyle Festival: This is fairly new event to Beaver Creek. The “Lux Fest” as the locals are calling it is only on its second year. This year the “Lux Fest” partnered with Mountain Living Magazine. You will see amazing cars, Beaver Creek’s version of fashion week, incredible homes, all while enjoying a glass of wine and delicious treats.
The Wrap Up- The Luxury Lifestyle Festival is great for the family. The event is outside so make sure you dress accordingly. By that we mean bring a rain jacket. The weather should be perfect for this event, but those afternoon showers come in quick. Be ready to walk around the village all day. The first event starts at 10am and ends at 3pm on Saturday, so go make a day out of it! We would suggest trying the food at the festival, but if the kids are still hungry take them to Blue Moose Pizza. Save some time and park down below and take the bus up. Believe us, it’s NO fun getting all the way up and realizing the people at the gate were right…. both parking garages are full.
Vail this Weekend:
We hate to say it, but it’s the last Oktoberfest in the valley. All weekend long celebrate by drinking beer and eating brats in Vail Village. Once again, a great event for the family. There are lots of fun things for the kids from contests to dancing. If you don’t take or don’t have kids, take the bus and really soak in what Oktoberfest is about. One of our favorites will be there, Helmut Fricker. This man is amazing!
The Wrap Up- Take the kids if you have them. The weather should be perfect, but do know the whole event takes place outside. Bring a couple bottles of water to save a couple bucks to put towards the steins (the steins are a great thing to have and take home). If you plan on celebrating with beer arrange a safe ride home. There are several cabs in the area and please use them! FUN FYI- have the kids ask Helmut for a joke. He always has one up his sleeve or should we say lederhosen.
