Fort Myers Oktoberfest Festival

October 23-25, 2020, The River District in downtown Fort Myers, FL

Fall is the end of summer, start of the coolness and beauty of autumn and across the world --- time for Oktoberfest! Wherever celebrated, Oktoberfest celebrations share common ingredients: lively music, mouthwatering food, and big, big pints of beer. Paragon Festivals, in partnership with the River District Alliance, returns a food and music tradition to Fort Myers: the 2nd Annual Fort Myers Oktoberfest. Stuff yourself with smoked sausages, roasted meats, sauerkraut, cabbage, and pretzels while enjoying authentic German music and dancers. Also enjoy live music performances by local and regional musicians in rock, soul, funk, R&B, blues, samba and more!


Join us on October 23-25, 2020 for the Fort Myers Oktoberfest in downtown Fort Myers in the River District. Hours are Friday 4pm-10pm, Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 11am-6pm. Admission is free! Gather friends and family and meetup with associates from work to enjoy and relax over the weekend celebrating everything Oktoberfest! Musical performers in 2019 were: Bavarian Boys (authentic Bavarian “oom-pah” and polka music), Ari & The Alibis (funk, jazz, samba), Alpine Doc (Bavarian, Americana 50’s & 60’s), Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio (rock, soul), The Verge (classic rock 70’s to present), CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion (blues, soul, roots), Tahja (Bavarian dancing), Free Fallin’ (Tom Petty Tribute Band) and Reverend Barry & The Funk (funk, soul).
