Oktoberfest Events in Orlando

Oktoberfest is held annually in Munich, Germany to celebrate Bavarian culture with a 16-day folk festival (running from late September to early October). Sure, a date night abroad would be awesome, but you can easily enjoy German-inspired brews at one of the many Oktoberfest events in Orlando.

And thankfully these events in Orlando span from late September all the way to the end of October. Prost!

2023 Information is added as announcements are made
