Here’s where to play. And where to crash in Vail this season (PS. Gravity Haus Members get up to 50% off nightly hotel room rates)
A true Vail classic, the colorful and eclectic farmer’s market celebrated 20 bountiful years this season. Cruise Meadow Drive and peruse more than 100 tents every summer Sunday. Snack and sip among 40 food vendors selling Greek desserts, Colorado honey, warm roasted nuts, rich artisan chocolate, wine from BookCliff Vineyards and so much more. Make a day of it and follow up your market stroll with a famous Vail fall hike. Then treat yourself to a warm stone massage at The Spa at Dryland Vail.
Go keg bowling, join the bratwurst eating contest and raise your sudsy stein to this age-old tradition. Oktoberfest in Vail means lederhosen, live Bavarian music, pretzels, schnitzel and strudel and a rockin’ good time in the mountains. Come see why USA Today named Vail’s among the 10 greatest Oktoberfest celebrations in the United States. Prosit!
Delve into the Vail epicurean scene with a full schedule of events created for food and wine lovers. Attend a caviar seminar, a lamb cook-off and a Willamette Valley sparkling wine tasting. Visit the valley’s top restaurants and indulge in course after course from some of the state’s finest chefs.
Geek out on feature films, documentaries, shorts and student films at this renowned fest. The Vail Film Festival commemorates 18 years of independent film through film screenings, panels, workshops, networking events and educational projects. Rub elbows with leading film industry pros at nightly parties and events.
