Fall means it's time for Rocktoberfest! No matter where Oktoberfest is celebrated, there are common ingredients: lively music, mouthwatering food, and big, big pints of beer.

Event Details

Paragon Festivals with the Downtown Sarasota Enrichment Association and their special guest the Humane Society of Sarasota County are bringing an authentic Oktoberfest experience coupled with fantastic live musical performances (= Rocktoberest!) to Sarasota on October 15-17, 2021. You will be able to stuff yourself with smoked sausages, roasted meats, sauerkraut, cabbage, and pretzels while enjoying authentic German music and dancers and live music performances in rock, soul, big band, R&B and more! Hours are Friday 4pm-10pm, Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 11am-6pm and admission is free.

Musical performers in the 2019 Oktoberfest event were: Triggerfish (pop, rock, country), Kettle of Fish (rock, blues, funk), Ari & The Alibis (funk, jazz, samba), Alpine Doc (Bavarian, Americana 50’s & 60’s), Tahja (Bavarian dancing), CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion (blues, soul, roots), Fleetwood Max (Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band), Ocean’s Eleven Big Band (big band, jazz, swing), Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio (rock, soul), and The Verge (classic rock 70’s to present).

Between performances shop the Marketplace of arts, crafts and select fine products and services.

The Humane Society will have their "Big Mac" mobile adoption center onsite. Please take a few moments to stop by and say “Hi” to the dedicated staff and meet their extended family of friends awaiting adoption. Find a new companion and lend support to a wonderful and compassionate organization.
