Oktoberfest Lake Worth, Florida

Took the family out tonight to the 38th Annual Oktoberfest here in town. For those who have never been before, the festival is like a miniature carnival. It's held the weekend of October 7th, 8th, and 9th & 14th, 15th and 16th. They have Rides, Arts and Crafts, Entertainment, Food, and most importantly DRINKS! Because, lets face it the main draw of Octoberfest is the beer. They have a good mix of German and American beers and several other "spirits" available.

Admission was $7 per adult, with kids free, but you can print out a $2 off coupon from the website. Also there is free parking, that has a little bit of a walk, or you can pay for preferred parking which is $10.

Once you enter the festival, you need to buy some tickets as the majority of the booths don't accept cash. Tickets are $1 a pop, and the way it works is like this. Beers are usually 4 tickets meals range from 3-10 tickets depending on what you order. You can also use the tickets for the rides.

We got in early opening day, and there wasn't a large crowd. We were able to walk all the way around the event and check things out with out bumping into to many people.

For dinner we both had the Half Rotisserie chicken with mashed potato's and gravy. The chicken was surprisingly good especially for something like a massed produced fair food. For dessert we had a typical fair funnel cake, and its hard to go wrong with fried dough covered in powdered sugar.

If you need something to do this weekend and you don't mind spending a little extra money then Oktoberfest should definitely be on your to-do list.


  1. FYI Living social was offering 1/2 off the tickets.

  2. Groupon was offering free tickets

  3. Didn't know that, would have been nice to know before we went though LOL. But really, for the price and experiance it wasn't that bad overall.

  4. Sehr interessant. Kommt hier noch ein Folgeartikel?
