Keystone Resort’s Oktoberfest event returns to River Run Village this year on Saturday, Sept. 6, with a new twist — a 5K running race.
The inaugural Das Bier Burner is expected to attract lederhosen-wearing runners and maybe even a couple clad in dirndls.
The trophy for crossing the finish line is a pint of Oktoberfest bier for runners 21 or older, plus the race benefits SOS Outreach, a youth development nonprofit that uses year-round, outdoor sports to engage underserved students in long-term, mentor-based relationships.
In the afternoon, Keystone’s Oktoberfest kicks up its heels and raises its steins with Colorado-brewed Oktoberfest beers and oompah bands from 1 to 6 p.m.
An Oktoberfest mug is $25, or a commemorative Oktoberfest stein is $35 and includes three beers. Kids will love the chicken dancing, as well as free face painting, a bounce house and performances from the Edelweiss Polka Dancers.
Admission to the event is free, with free parking in the River Run Village parking lots. Food and drinks are available at a la carte prices. River Run Village stores and shops also are getting into the spirit and having an Oktoberfest Tent Sale from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. that day.
