Downtown Jensen Beach To Host Its First-Ever Oktoberfest This Weekend

Get ready to celebrate Oktoberfest—Jenzen Style.

That's right, downtown Jensen Beach is hosting its first-ever Oktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Attendees can enjoy German food and beers, outdoor games, and live music by the Swinging Bavarians.

The Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce, which also produces the annual Pineapple Festival benefiting local nonprofits, decided to host the new Oktoberfest event as an additional fundraiser for The Entrepreneurship Foundation, according to Suzanne Goudreau, executive assistant of the Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce.

The nonprofit, housed by the Chamber of Commerce, promotes an entrepreneurial climate in the community and provides resources supporting entrepreneurial development to schools in the Jensen Beach area.

Guests at Oktoberfest Jenzen Style can munch on food from Polka European Market & Deli (not included in the cost of admission). Dishes include bratwurst, kielbasa, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, apple strudel and pretzels. 

And as for those beers on tap, there'll be Warsteiner Pilsner, special edition Warsteiner Oktoberfest, Yuengling Oktoberfest seasonal brews and Miller Lite.

If German food and drink isn't enough to entice you, the unique Swinging Bavarians will surely be memorable. The German Bavarian band's performances often feature authentic Schuhplattler folk dancing, Apline yodeling, German and English singing, Austrian cowbells, sing-a-longs to beer drinking tunes and more.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the event on Saturday. The $7.50 cost of admission includes a free 16-ounce commemorative beer stein.
