Parker OktoberfestTwelve Years Running - We're Doing it Right!
Twelve years ago we launched our first Oktoberfest celebration in Parker Colorado as PAC (Parker Arts Council). Primarily as a cultural awareness and fundraising opportunity. We now have grown and attract well over 35,000 visitors and 100 vendors!
We are in our 12th year, and feel we put on a pretty good show! Authentic German heritage is our theme, and this year we are focused even more on the authentic German setting and ambience.
Admission is free for all young and younger, families to singles. The event includes a number of fun activities for children, great things to do for adults.
The 12th Annual Parker Oktoberfest will be held September 15th through 17th, Friday 6 pm – 10 pm, Saturday 11:00 am – 10 pm and Sunday 10 am – 5 pm.
Get In On the Oktoberfest Action Early!
Get your 12th Anniversary stein pre-ordered / or consider volunteering and being part of the event itself. It’s FUN, it’s FULFILLING and it’s for a GREAT CAUSE. We can’t make it a successful event without you, the volunteer!!!
Music Steeped in Tradition
We pride ourselves on having authentic German entertainment on the stage. A favorite, each and every year.
Exercise Your Might
Looks easy. But we have seen many a big man crumble in the hoist competition.
Yes... It's a Celebration!
We believe we truly kick off the Oktoberfest celebration on the front range. We have great attendance, lots of fun and an enjoyment in bringing you the BEST in culture.
Yes rocket science is another step into the minds of our youth. Join us soon for Brainard Starlings workshops in understanding and building rockets using ordinary items. As the next great frontier, this could be the starting step of tomorrows greatest space explorer. More to come in 2015.
Look for our 2015 program to reach back into the hives of exploration while studying and working on a project very familiar to Parker. We are in early stages of resurrecting this program while fostering a understanding of nature’s most precious answer.
Did you know Parker is home to Deep Space? That’s Deep Space the location. A shared work environment by day, event and performance center, art gallery and studio, – they transform into educational playground for youth science programs such as robotics, sound and media to name a few. Our partner programs are sure to be a hit here in 2015.
We continue to plan with the leaders of Deep Space, integration of their current robotics and science clubs, with the potential to house a 3D model machine, and state wide science competitions at their location. 2015 is shaping up to be a monster year in our sciences division!
