Oktoberfest in Pinellas County

Pin It

Like every year, I am surprised.

The few Oktoberfeste that we have in Pinellas County are all in October and most of them towards the end.

Being a German I know my Oktoberfest dates.

This year the Oktoberfest in German is from 9/16  to 10/3

Usually it is between 16 and 18 days long.

Millions of people from all over the world join the celebration.

It is a huge fair with lots of ride, music, food and last but defiantly no least BEER

In 2006 they sold a little more than  1,611,449. Gallons of beer.

Yes, that is right 1.6 million -can you imagine how many glasses these are?

It is the biggest fair Germany has, followed by the  “Düsseldorfer Kirmes”

Which is in the summer and also runs for about 14 days.

If you know of an Oktoberfest in St Petersburg, please let me know, I need a reason to wear my “Dirndel”
