3rd Annual Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl Saturday, October 6th

A Unique Way to Explore Ybor!



(Tampa, Florida) The Ybor City Chamber will host its Third Annual Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl - Saturday, October 6th from 4:00 to 8:00 PM beginning in the courtyard of Centro Ybor. This year's event will feature 17 of Ybor City's unique pubs and patio bars from one end of the District to the other.


"This early-evening event celebrates the contribution of Ybor's German immigrants in a manner that is just plain fun," says Tom Keating, President & CEO of the Ybor City Chamber. "Tampa's young professionals have made 'O'Fest' a success right from the start."


Registration will be held at the Centro Ybor courtyard in the center of Tampa's National Historic Landmark District. The first 500 participants will receive an official 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 venues will have special offers, giveaways and some will even have German food on the menu. Our "prize patrol" will travel the District awarding gift certificates and other items to participants who can answer OktoberFest trivia questions.


The Ybor OktoberFest Pub Crawl is sponsored by Columbia Jobbing Co. Media Sponsors are Creative Loafing and WMNF 88.5. Tickets are $25 - register on-line at under OktoberFest. Walk-ups are welcome, while tickets last. For more information call the Ybor Chamber's Visitor Information Center at 813.241.8838.
