The festival of Gemütlichkeit returns for the 11th Annual Oktoberfest Tampa event. For 3 full days, Tampa’s downtown Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park will be transformed into the city’s largest, waterfront biergarten. Soak in the sprawling downtown views and beautiful sunsets, as the park buzzes with live music, dancing, dirndls and lederhosen, and the bratwurst and schnitzel your heart desires!
A full authentic Bavarian food hall will be available, as well as a variety of Oktoberfest style beers are offered around the festival grounds. We are proud to partner with Green Bench Brewing to bring you three unique, traditional brews found only at Oktoberfest Tampa. These brews will include: traditional Hefeweizen, Dunkel lager, and Festbier märzen. Our full beer lineup is available on our website. Radlers, red and white wine varieties will also be available. Each festival day, we also will have one craft beer firkin tapping to celebrate the occasion with our local breweries.
Festival goers are encouraged to participate in the wide range of custom-crafted, Outrageous Bavarian Games, that foster fun challenges to win cool prizes, medals and more importantly, the bragging rights. Oktoberfest Games are FREE to play. Challenges include: Stein Hoisting, Keg stacking, Tug-O-War, Brat Toss, Carry the Wench and many more. Every year, entrance to the event is free for men and women of the Armed Forces (active or retired) and any first responders of the City of Tampa (TPD, TFR, EMS) for you and your spouse. Simply show your proper ID at the entry gate.
This event proudly supports Are You Safe, a local Tampa non-profit organization that advocates and assists domestic violence victims through empowerment and education.
