We’re so fortunate to live in a region that provides so many options to get outside and enjoy our surroundings just moments from our apartments in El Paso. And this fall is no exception; it’s almost overwhelming. And with that said, we thought we’d share one of two of our ‘favorite things to do this fall’ with you!
The Authentic Oktoberfest at the El Paso County Coliseum
September 16 – 18
If you have never attended an Oktoberfest, attend this one. Classically designed to emulate all there is to do and see and sip at an Oktoberfest, the El Paso County Coliseum pulls out all stops to do it right and do it well.
The event starts at 6:00 pm and concludes at Midnight on Friday and Saturday and tickets are $10 in advance through the Coliseum Box Office or TicketMaster. On Sunday, it’s free for the whole family and begins at noon and ends at 6:00 p.m.
Come prepared to join in the festivities with live music by Alex Meixer, sip authentic brews from Paulaner Beer from Munich, and feast on all the brats that you can consume during this locally-favorite fall festival.
