FORToberfest bids farewell to summer, welcomes the fall season

Over the weekend, Fort Collins celebrated the beginning of fall and the end the of outdoor concert season with its own Oktoberfest celebration called FORToberfest.

The celebration began at 11 a.m. in Old Town and featured performances from local bands and beer from local breweries. Around 300 people showed up to enjoy FORToberfest.


Though small in scale, FORToberfest boasted around eight vendors ranging from kettle corn, pretzels, brats, beer and local clothing companies.

Most attendees waited through long lines to indulge in Odell Brewing Company’s seasonal Oktoberfest brew. By 2 p.m., the vendors had already gone through three kegs of Odell’s Oktoberfest brew, showing it to be one of the more popular choices among attendees.

In addition to beer, the event celebrated the last outdoor concert for Fort Collins this season. The show featured local bands including Matt Mahern’s Constitution, Wasteland Hop and The Burrows.

Most attendees came for the beer and free music, and plenty brought their dogs as well, enjoying the small escape from their daily lives.
