 2nd Annual Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl Saturday, October 1st

Chamber's "O-Fest" Features Ybor's Eclectic Watering Holes



(Tampa, Florida) The Ybor City Chamber will host its Second Annual Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl Saturday, October 1st from 4:00 to 8:00 PM beginning in the courtyard of Centro Ybor. This year's event will feature 18 of Ybor City's unique pubs and patio bars from one end of the District to the other.


Registration will be held at the Centro Ybor courtyard in the center of Tampa's National Historic Landmark District. Each participant will receive a Pub Crawl T-shirt and a map providing a brief description of each venue and their offerings. Each pub will provide a complimentary 4 ounce sample of Oktoberfest or other premium beer.


Many of the crawl pubs will have special offers, complimentary gifts and some will even have German food on the menu. Our "prize patrol" will travel the District awarding gift certificates to participants who can answer OktoberFest trivia questions. This year, we will have folks dressed in authentic German costumes, provided by Event Show Productions, to add a little more color and character to this fun event.


The Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl is sponsored by Beck's Beer and Yellow Cab of Tampa. Media Sponsors are Creative Loafing and Play 98.7. Tickets are $25 - register on-line at under OktoberFest. Walk-ups are welcome, while supplies last. For more information call the Ybor Chamber's Visitor Information Center at 813.241-8838.
