Oktoberfest 2014

23-Jul-2014 Oktoberfest brings the best of Old Bavaria and New Florida together for three full days of authentic German food, drink, music and dancing ... along with a spectacular carnival & midway, a great arts & crafts show, and the wildest array of audience participation contests that the Tampa Bay area has ever seen!
 
So, you ask, just how did the Top o’ the Bay suddenly become Bavaria by the Bay?  To tell you the truth, we have no idea!  But as for the history of Oktoberfest itself, well, that’s a completely different story...
 
Way back on October 12, 1810, the event which the world now knows as “Oktoberfest” began in Germany as a simple wedding reception.  OK, so maybe it wasn’t so simple. After all, the participants were Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony, and every man, woman and child in the city of Munich was invited.  But, hey ... it was a wedding that got this whole thing started.
 
Two hundred + years later, the 19th Annual Top o’ the Bay Oktoberfest is a “wedding” as well ... a wedding of Old Bavarian and New Floridian cultures, meshing Old World customs with New World traditions in a festival which has quickly become one of the most popular annual events in the entire Tampa Bay area.
