Break out your best lederhosen and get ready to raise a stein at this signature fall event in Wynwood.
Each year, Miami locals and tourists alike look forward to the beginning of fall, and not only for the ever
so slightly cooler temperatures that begin to settle into the area. Now in its 10th year, the start of
autumn for the area heralds in the three-day extravaganza known as Wynwood Octoberfest! With
an inherent Miami flair running through the event, this celebration fuses our vibrant culture with the
Bavarian roots of the world’s largest beer festival.
This is Octoberfest!
The 10th annual Wynwood Octoberfest will kick off on Friday, September 27th and run through Sunday,
September 29th at the Wynwood Marketplace. While this seasonal spectacle’s main attractions are the
same on each day, the hours of the fest do differ: Friday: 7PM – 2AM | Saturday: 2PM – 2AM | Sunday:
12PM – 8PM. Admission to Octoberfest is FREE for all and will be taking place in a designated half
open/half sheltered area of the Marketplace. This will protect all fest-goers from the elements while still
recreating that authentic Munich beer hall feeling. Yet, throughout both areas, you will enjoy many fall-
inspired activities such as the ever-popular grand photo booth and beer hall, but also pumpkin-themed
everything from food, artisan goods, and photo-ops for your Instagram (including a variety of dog-
inspired activities that will surely make those likes skyrocket).
And yes, we repeat: this is O-C-toberfest!
You may find yourself confused by the spelling of this event, but the Wynwood Octoberfest is every bit
as Bavarian-inspired as any celebration that spells it with a K. The reason for the change is solely
American, but not in honor of the tenth month of the year. The main sponsor for the event is Boston-
headquartered Samuel Adams®, with their OctoberFest brew running in copious amounts throughout
the weekend. Their influence has helped craft this event over the years and one of the best ways to
experience the Fest is with a Beer or Party Pack. Yes, a multitude of the events are FREE to the public, but with a Beer Party Pack ($21), you get a much more immersive experience including a souvenir half-liter stein, a complimentary beer, and an authentic Bavarian hat!
So, get ready to be transported to Munich in body, mind, and soul and enjoy a fun-filled day and evening
at the Wynwood Octoberfest! Then come back, put down your stein, and relax at Hilton Miami
Downtown, conveniently located only a mile away from the Marketplace. No matter how much hoppy
enjoyment you partake in, we offer sophisticated rooms and modern amenities to bring you back from your Bavarian bliss in Magic City style!
