Presented by the Reilly, come on out for Ocala's 3rd Annual Oktoberfest including awesome music, traditional and non-traditional food from Pi on Broadway, special beer from Infinite Ale Works and an all around great time. Good for families. Good for everyone.
This year we're doing it right: A giant beer hall tent in Tuscawilla Park to take advantage of the beautiful views while not letting any stinkin' hurricanes or other weather get the jump on us. We have an awesome and eclectic line-up of bands complete with some traditional german fare and bands from Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando, and New Orleans.
Relax in beautiful Tuscawilla Park with an authentic brew in the Infinite Ale Works Biergarten, and fill up with authentic german cuisine from Pi On Broadway.
General Admission is FREE for all. VIP tickets go on sale July 30 for $65 and will include $20 in food/beer credit, a souvenir stein OR boot, festival t-shirt, indoor lounge and bathrooms, and VIP seating.
Some music details:
-To start the afternoon off and keep us busy between sets the King Guys Okotoberfest Brass Band will keep us "prost-ing" and happy with marches, polkas, waltzes, and sing-a-alongs in a fun and interactive presentation that audiences love.
-Leisure Chief is a new-wave, musical powerhouse drawing influence from Funk, Jazz, Fusion, Hip Hop, and Soul and will keep the day going strong.
-Keeping it real in New Orleans since 2012, In Business will be bringing their talents in the creation and distribution of high quality funk to Ocala.
