There's still time to visit the best Oktoberfests South Florida has to offer

The American German Club of the Palm Beaches has hosted its authentic Oktoberfests for 40 years, making it one of the largest in the country.

Like many international holidays celebrated in America, Germany’s Oktoberfest has quickly become one of our most beloved drinking festivities, and an excuse to gluttonously indulge on beer. So, for all you Oktoberfest lovers out there (you know who you are!) luckily there is still time to hit up some of the best festivals in South Florida.

The German American Social Club of Greater Miami will be hosting its 56th Oktoberfest next weekend. Visit the longest continuously running Oktoberfest in the country, for plenty of authentic German beer and food. Enjoy live music from German and Austrian bands, and performances from traditional German dance groups. Day tickets for adults are $10, $1 for 12-20 year-olds, and military personnel and children are free. The event will take place October 25th- 27th, and is located at 11919 SW 56th Street in Miami.

The American German Club of the Palm Beaches has proudly hosted its authentic Oktoberfests for 40 years, making it one of the largest in the country. The club will be hosting its Oktoberfest all weekend long, and like every year, they’ll be offering visitors a “real” German experience. Expect authentic cuisine, including bratwurst, potato salad, and sauerkraut, and gulp the Original Hofbräu Bier, imported from Munich. Visitors can enjoy activities for the whole family, including traditional folk dancing, live music from German bands, crafts and a carnival. Admission for adults is $8, and children under 12 with a paying adult are free. The event takes place today, Friday, October 18th to Sunday, October 20th, and is located at 5111 Lantana Road, Lake Worth, FL 33463.

3 Oktoberfest Recipes For The Campsite

Oktoberfest is right around the corner, and if you can’t make it to Germany for the biggest party in the world you can still celebrate at the campsite. Here are 3 Oktoberfest recipes to keep the spirit alive!

Tangy Oktoberfest Brats

One of the most succulent ways to prepare a big, fat bratwurst is to throw it in beer. It will impart a particularly hearty flavor when, slathered in sauerkraut, will be the envy of the campground. At the campsite it best to keep cooking tasty and simple, so that’s what we have for you here. This Oktoberfest brat recipe couldn’t be easier…or tastier.


2 cans of dark beer (avoid IPAs, bitter brats aren’t very tasty)


  1. Grill the brats over medium heat for about 20 minutes. Be nice to them.
  2. Pour the remaining ingredients in a cast iron pan or Dutch oven and simmer for another 20 minutes.
  3. When the brats are almost done, toast the buns on the grate.
  4. Serve with sauerkraut and the toppings of your choosing.

Oktoberfest Foil Packet

If you’ve camped a lot you know the power of the foil packet. It’s the original “set it and forget it.” Toss these ingredients together in a foil packet and throw it in the coals for an easy and delicious meal.


1 apple, cored and cut into 1 inch chunks


  1. Pour the beer into the foil packet and place the onion slices in first. Then add the sauerkraut, followed by the apples, onion and caraway seeds.
  2. Place in the coals for 20-30 min. The sauerkraut and onions will also be great on a brat (if you have any left over).

Incredible Oktoberfest Mustard

This is easy to whip up at the campsite, and will elicit a few “wow” reactions from your fellow campers. It goes great on a brat or as a pretzel dip for the picnic table.

Traveling A1A: Florida’s Iconic Beach Route from Florida Man on the Run

Day 1: Fernandina Beach
Day 2: St. Augustine
Day 3: Cape Canaveral (Cocoa Beach)
Day 4: Delray Beach
Day 5: Miami Beach
Day 6: Key West

Florida doesn’t seem like your typical road trip destination, but that is a misconception. In fact, one of the most iconic coastal routes in America can be found along Florida State Road A1A. This six-day itinerary will let you take the drive in leisurely fashion, which is the only way to do it.

Day One: Fernandina Beach is everything you could want from Old Florida. Check out the beach inside Fort Clinch State Park to get one of the more pristine Florida beaches. The city’s downtown is a perfect slice of Old Florida, so don’t miss it.

Day Two: Packed full of history, St. Augustine is a major destination on this trip. Castillo de San Marcos is the center piece of St. Augustine. Make your way down St. George Street to do some shopping. Afterwards, head onto the island to visit Anastasia State Park or the Alligator Farm with the kids.

Day Three: Cape Canaveral allows you to explore being an astronaut, stand next to ginormous rockets or perhaps even catch a rocket launch. Kennedy Space Center is a unique place you won’t be able to find anywhere else in America. Spend the night at Cocoa Beach and get your first taste of Florida’s beach night life.

Day Four: While there is plenty of beach front to explore on this trip, Delray Beach offers the perfect blend of beautiful beach front, quirky arts districts, and all-Florida charm. The trip between Cocoa and Delray is one of the longest days, so get an early start to enjoy Delray.

Day Five: How can you take a trip along the Florida coast and not spend some time on South Beach! It’s not the usual road trip scene, but the sights and sounds of South Beach truly aren’t to be missed. So go enjoy yourself and live it up!

Day Six: Today you’ll travel along one of the most unusual bridges in the world to a destination equally as unique. Make your stop at the Southern Most Point, then head to Duval Street and party it up! The best thing about ending in Key West is that you literally have nowhere else to go, so sit back, relax, and grab a margarita.

3. Eating a Tasty Key Lime Treat

Indulge in a world-famous chocolate-dipped Key Lime Pie on a Stick, or one of the other classic favorites at everybody’s preferred key lime shop in the Keys, Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe. You may even catch Kermit outside of the store as he waves to the passersby encouraging them to stop for a look. Kermit’s creations range from cheesecake to salsas and cookies to cocktail sauce. My favorite? The Strawberry Key Lime pie.

Fun Fall Festivals in Florida You Can’t Miss

Fall in Florida is not like the rest of the country. Folks are still wearing flip flops and spending weekends at the beach. Although a few of the native trees change colors and the weather begins to get cooler, Florida is still a tropical destination. The warm sandy beaches call as palm trees wave. So how do people in Florida celebrate the changing of the season? With fabulous fall festivals, of course! Here are some of the ways Fall is observed – with a Florida twist.

Fall Festival and Rocktoberfest

On Oct. 21-22, in the Town of Celebration, a variety of colorful leaves actually fall. Market Street transforms into a Fall Festival for every age with live music, food and drinks, paint a pumpkin, a hayride and much more. But the big draw is when the autumn leaves swirl with the wind as they fall from the building tops daily at 7, 8 and 9 pm. All ages hustle to gather their favorite shapes and colors of leaves as they descend on Celebration Town Center.

Both Tampa and Miami revel with lederhosen, dancing, beer and brats in October.

Miami celebrates the 60 th original and longest running German Oktoberfest in Florida and the longest continuously running Oktoberfest in the United States. Join the German traditions on Oct. 13-15 and 20-22, at the German American Social Club. Expect live German music, authentic German folk dancing and costumes, and German food and beer. There will also be activities for the little folk. And then there’s Grovetoberfest, the largest craft beer fest in Florida, held October 14 at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove.

Tampa’s festival is held for three days, October 20-22, at Tampa Bay Downs and includes stein-holding and log-sawing contests and carnival attractions, as well as German music, food and fare.

Yes, they have corn mazes in Florida. There are several great corn mazes across the state. One of the best can be found in Mount Dora. It’s the “Long & Scott’s Corn Maze and Family Fun.” With a different theme for the maze every year, Long & Scott’s offers several options of mazes ranging from mini mazes up to the challenging maze that may take some time to conquer. There is also a hayride, a general store, farm tours and a café. All across Florida, every city and town offers their own Fall pumpkin patches and fall festivals.

Manatee Watching in Homosassa

Fall is the perfect time to spot manatees at Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park in Homosassa where the waters are a constant 72 degrees. West Indian manatees can be seen every day at the park’s underwater observatory in the main spring. Bring a picnic and make a day of it. The children’s educational center allows visitors to have a hands-on experience with Florida’s environment. Other animals you might see include black bears, bobcats, white tail deer, alligators river otters and more.
