Lovers of beer and German cuisine are in luck. The City of Lone Tree will host its annual “Craftoberfest” on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 2–5:30 p.m. at Prairie Sky Park, located at 9381 Crossington Way.
Oktoberfest is an annual German festival held in autumn that is often referred to as a beer festival. While the festival takes place in Munich, Germany, other locations around the world host their own celebrations.
Lone Tree’s “Craftoberfest” is expected to have six breweries in attendance, such as the Lone Tree Brewing Company, Blue Spruce Brewing Company and Little Dry Creek Brewery, according to a Sept. 15 news release from the city.
To accompany the craft beer selections, there will also be food trucks and German cuisine.
Although beer-sampling is a highlight of the event, the festival is family-friendly. Attendees can enjoy live performances of bluegrass and oompah music, as well as a range of activities including cornhole and polka dancing.
Those wanting to test their strength can also look forward to a stein raising competition. The U.S. Steinholding Association describes steinholding as a traditional Bavarian strength contest. For as long as possible, competitors have to hold a full 1-liter beer stein in front of them with a straight arm.
Tickets are required to attend the event, according to the release.
There are three ticket options available for purchase:

A portion of the proceeds from the Lone Tree “Craftoberfest” will be donated to Tall Tales Ranch to help build its ranch site in Lone Tree, according to the release.
Tall Tales Ranch is a nonprofit dedicated to creating a community “where people with and without disabilities can live in a supportive, cooperative environment that honors their individuality, celebrates their uniqueness, and helps them reach their full potential,” according to the release.
The development of the nonprofit’s ranch, which will be near the RTD RidgeGate Parkway Station, was approved by Lone Tree City Council in 2020.
According to the nonprofit’s website, the ranch will include a community event barn, which will house the nonprofit’s coffee shop and event venue, as well as four buildings that will house 28 apartments. These apartments are designed to be leased by people living with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, as well as neurotypical people.
