Holladay real estate owners go to Oktoberfest.A major selling point for Holladay real estate is the short drive to the skiing and events at Snowbird. Each year Snowbird hosts an Oktoberfest, which runs from mid-August to mid-October. The last two weekends are Saturday and Sunday, October 12th and 13th and October 19th and 20th from noon to 6 p.m. each day. Whether you’re a brand new Holladay home owner or you’ve been here for years, take time to drive out to Snowbird for this excellent Oktoberfest. Or plan a special getaway and take advantage of special Oktober rates at the lodge. The Prost Package starts at $99 per person per night and includes two Oktoberfest litre mugs and two bratwursts in the Oktoberfest Halle. And then you don’t have to worry about a designated driver, either.

Plan an Oktoberfest Getaway Near Your Holladay Home

You definitely want to come hungry (and thirsty!) to Oktoberfest. The biergarten features more than 50 different varieties of beer. Try authentic German brews and see how they compare with local Utah contributions. Several well-known Utah breweries will be there, including Bohemian, Moab Brewers, and Squatters. You’ll save a few bucks on beer by using your litre Oktoberfest beer stein. There’s a new design every year, so you can start a collection if you want. Or just bring last year’s along with you.

When you’re ready for traditional German fare, go to the Oktober Halle. Have a wurst or pork schnitzel. Try beef rouladen or spaetzle. Have an apple strudel or other sweet treat while you’re there, too. Relax and listen to the live music. Check out Der Marktplatz, or vendor area, if you’ve forgotten your high school German. You’ll find all sorts of cool stuff, from jewelry to clothing to art. Ride the aerial tram to the summit, but leave your beer behind while you enjoy the panoramic view.
