What's On Suncoast

What’s On Suncoast? 10.7-10.14

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things around the area this week of October 7 – 14, 2022!


Oktoberfest Tampa

Oktoberfest Tampa
Curtis Hixon Park, 600 N. Ashley Drive, Tampa, FL 33602

Tampa’s downtown Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park will be transformed into the city’s largest waterfront beer garden for three full days. Soak in the sprawling downtown views and beautiful sunsets as the park buzzes with live music, dancing, alphorns, dirndls, lederhosen – and of course, beer! 

Various beers, from traditional German Pils to multiple Oktoberfest märzens and Hefeweizen, will all also be available. 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. Red and white wine, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and other refreshments will also be available.

Festival goers are encouraged to participate in the wide range of custom-crafted Outrageous Bavarian Games that foster fun challenges to win cool prizes and, more importantly, bragging rights. Oktoberfest Games are free to play. Saturday afternoon is jam-packed with some of our biggest competitions. The Beard and Mustache competition is one of the biggest in the region, and the Mr. & Mrs. Oktoberfest is unique from any other challenge we’ve seen. Hoist your stein with us and watch one of Tampa’s most engaging personal competitions available throughout the year!
