Did somebody say beer? Oktoberfest will be Sept. 13, 5-8 p.m. in Downtown Venice.


Put on your best German lederhosen and get ready to sample beers and shop during Oktoberfest 5 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 13.

Ticket holders will be able to enjoy a fall-themed beer tasting at each of the participating locations in Downtown Venice as live, traditional German music fills the air. Attendees will receive a small sampling stein on a lanyard and get to sample a variety of brews in three-ounce tastings, as they follow a map of beer-tasting locations.

“We are excited, for the second year, to bring in a great selection of new and innovative craft and seasonal beers to Downtown Venice,” said Nick Sperry, events and partnership coordinator for Venice MainStreet, event organizer.

“Pair that with the sounds of traditional, live German music being heard on the street corners, and I believe guests will be treated to a one-of-a-kind experience. With our great partnership with Gold Coast Eagle Distributing and Venice MainStreet partners, we look forward to a great evening of festivities.”

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at the Venice MainStreet office, 101 W. Venice Ave., Suite 23; purchased the day of the event at 5 p.m. at the kiosk in Centennial Park; or online at: visitvenicefl.org.

Attendees will be able to pick up their stein, lanyard and map at the kiosk at 5 p.m., when the event begins.

Proceeds from ticket sales go to support Venice MainStreet’s mission to enhance the quality of life in our community by preserving, protecting, and promoting Historic Downtown Venice.
