Octoberfest in Miami

3 Days, $0 Cost...

Make no mistake, the Sam Adams Octoberfest is
the largest Octoberfest celebration in South Florida
celebrating its 7th year !

Octoberfest is a celebration of Bavarian culture, history and come on, who are we kidding? Octoberfest is all about the beer! For the Sam Adams Octoberfest Miami, it isn’t enough to recreate an authentic Bavarian Beer Hall. We’re not satisfied with having three days of action. It doesn’t make us happy to have the largest Oktoberfest celebration in South Florida. And it is not in our nature to rest on our laurels and bring you the #1 selling Oktoberfest beer in the U.S. No. None of this is enough for us. So what else can we do? Well, we’ll make it all free! That’s right, entry to the 7th annual Sam Adams Octoberfest in Miami is free. Free for all! We’ll have plenty of Sam Adams Octoberfest beer, great food, live bands, and plenty of incredible entertainment. Join us this September 30th through October 2nd in the heart of Miami for a true Bavarian experience. Entry is free and so is the fun!

F.A.Q. – Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Wait, the event is FREE?!?! Then what does a ticket get me?

A: YES, the event is FREE!  Also, the first 100 attendees for each day get a free beer!  The tickets offer an immersive experience including a souvenir half liter stein, complimentary beer AND an authentic bavarian hat!  Full ticket details can be found on the ticket page.

Q: Doesn't Octoberfest start September 19?

A: Although the word “Oktoberfest” would lead you to believe the event is held in October the reality is that the month-long celebration in Germany actually begins Sept 19.  This year rather than kick off the celebrations for two days we will be celebrating the close for 3 days!

Q: Do the first 100 RSVP's really get a free beer?

A: Yes and no.  The first 100 people to arrive at the event AND show their RSVP will receive a free beer!  Your RSVP is not enough to secure your warm up beer, you must also be within the first 100 to show up!

Q: Is this event indoor or outdoor?

A: BOTH!  This year we are going half open / half sheltered area from the elements while still recreating that authentic Munich beer hall.  Not only will we be sheltered from the elements, but we’ll be enjoying our festival beers smack in the middle in our beloved Wynwood!

Q: I've never seen the Sam Adams Castle & Beer Hall?

A: We haven’t seen it either – except in our wildest dreams. And that’s what we are bringing to life at Octoberfest. We’re taking over MANA Production Village in Wynwood. There will be a massive stage, a gigantic traditional German wreath as the centerpiece, long flowing festival tables, beer wenches serving the coldest Sam Adams beer you’ve ever had, German bands and dozens of food options.  You will be transported to Munich in body, mind and spirit.

Q: You mean we get a trip to Munich?

A: Really? Send us an email so we don’t let you in.
