In Germany, October is synonymous with Oktoberfest, a 16+ day festival of celebration and one of the largest festivals in the world. Given the popularity of beer during this special holiday, the brewing scene of Florida meshes very well with the concept. With this in mind, Oktoberfest Tampa has become a staple celebration in the Bay and is returning again to bring the spirit of Germany to Florida
If you happen to like beer, good food, and good causes, Tampa Oktoberfest is an event you don’t want to miss. Chicken Schnitzel? You got it. Craving a juicy bratwurst? You’ll get your fix here. If you can make it out there on Saturday at 3pm, you’ll catch Mayor Buckhorn tapping the ceremonial keg. Oktoberfest Tampa will also be featuring the strongman-like “Outrageous Bavarian Games” for anyone looking to test their might.
If you plan on going, be sure to check out the Oktoberfest Tampa Survival Guide and brush up on your Oktoberfest etiquette before heading out there this weekend.
