Piertoberfest Reschedules Massive German Food and Drink Celebration
Piertoberfest Reschedules Massive German Food and Drink Celebration to October 22nd
Oktoberfest on the water? St. Pete is making it happen with the return of Piertoberfest on Saturday, October 22. An all-day event featuring German beer, food, and games! The Oktoberfest party takes place from 12-10pm at Spa Beach Park on the St. Pete Pier.
There is much more to this festival than just steins of authentic German beer from Bavaria's best breweries. Tons of local food vendors will be supplying all the traditional dishes like bratwurst, currywurst, spatzen, sauerbraten, potato salad, giant pretzels, and apple strudel funnel cakes.
In addition to all the eating and drinking, Piertoberfest will feature a rotation of classic Bavarian music, polka, and other Oktoberfest favorites. And for those ready to show what they’re made of, attendees can participate in Oktoberfest competitions like stein hoisting, tug of war, keg tossing, and more. There will even be a best-dressed competition, so don’t hesitate to break out the lederhosen and dirndls.
Among the double-digit offerings of German and German-style beers, guests can try the original Oktoberfest Marzen by Paulaner Brewery which debuted at the original Oktoberfest more than 200 years ago and has come to be the symbol of Oktoberfest worldwide. Beyond the long list of traditional brews from old-school German breweries, there will be a selection of Oktoberfest-style beers from local breweries, as well.
