    Just an FYI for you. I was trying to find more info on the Oktoberfest here in Montrose, COLORADO. I clicked on your link, and it takes me to the Oktoberfest in Montrose, CALIFORNIA. As much as I would love to see the beaches and all, I much prefer the awesomeness we have here in Colorado. :)

  2. Ryan says:

    When will you have dates for 2013?

    • Mr. Funtober says:

      I looked last month and very few festivals had posted 2013 dates on their own websites. I’m going to make an effort over the next month to reach out to them and get them posted.

  3. Ken says:

    was just checking thru the various festivals (nice compilation page!), and found updated info for the Estes Park “Oktoberfest” festival. I’ve included the updated website link above for your reference in updating this page.

    Thank you for your efforts in pulling together info on the various festivals!

    The Colorado Springs Oktoberfest has changed locations from the Tutt Blvd location. The new location is at the Citadel Mall, northeast parking lot, 3705 Citadel Drive East, Colorado Springs, CO 80909. If you could change that information for us that’d be great. I work for the office that is putting together the Colorado Springs Oktoberfest and I just want to say we appreciate such a convenient website for our Oktoberfest to be shown in.
