Oktoberfest is held annually in Munich, Germany to celebrate Bavarian culture with a 16-day folk festival (running from late September to early October). Sure, a date night abroad would be awesome, but you can easily enjoy German-inspired brews at one of the many Oktoberfest events in Orlando.
And thankfully these events in Orlando span from late September all the way to the end of October. Prost!
