Of all of Germany's contributions, Oktoberfest is definitely the best (sorry, Volkswagen) because it gives us an excuse to be with friends and enjoy fine German beers and tasty traditional cuisine. Let loose and celebrate the holiday at one of these Oktoberfest events in Fort Lauderdale.

Oktoberfest at the German American Club of Hollywood 

Just south of Fort Lauderdale, you can find one of the best Oktoberfest events in South Florida. The German American Club of Hollywood will host the event on October 13 and 27 featuring holiday favorites like German beer and authentic food as well as a Miss Oktoberfest pageant. Members are $5, guests are $10, and children under 12 are free.

Fort Lauderdale Benevolent Firefighters Association Oktoberfest Homebrew Competition

Join your local firefighters for beer and grub at their annual Oktoberfest celebration. With countless local brewers like Maltese Cross Ale Works, K. Love Brewing, and more, you can celebrate the holiday the right way on October 20 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.. Admission is $20 a person, and all proceeds will benefit the Sick and Injured Fund to help provide for local firefighters.

Funky Buddha Brewery Oktoberfest

If you want to make the holiday last the entire month, head to the Funky Buddha Brewery for special-priced German brews. Pay $15 for the first 32 oz. pour and then $8 for all after and enjoy German-themed food specials each day. This glorious month lasts from September 17 to October 21, so make sure to take advantage of it while you still can!
