Internationally, Oktoberfest is the worldâ€™s largest traveling beer festival and funfair attracting over 6 million people to Munich, Germany each fall. Here in Floridaâ€™s capital region, Oktoberfest is celebrated as the highly-anticipated annual community event of the fall, drawing an energetic crowd in the hundreds to celebrate community and support a great cause.
Made possible by many generous philanthropists and sponsors, this yearâ€™s 20th anniversary event is the signature fundraiser benefiting Elder Care Services. Proceeds support critical programs such as Meals on Wheels, senior adult day care, and caregiver respite services to improve the quality of life for seniors in our community.
Join us on Friday, September 28 at the Tally Pavilion for authentic German cuisine, unlimited beer, tasting receptions, and an entertaining games station. Individual tickets are $75 for general admission and $125 for VIP admission (includes early access to event). Sponsorship packages are available. Contact us for details on discounts for students, volunteers, and agency partners.
