From tasty BBQ to German beer and great art, it’s all on the calendar this October in Tampa! So as the weather finally starts to cool down a bit, get outside and swing over to any of these upcoming events going on this month:
Oktoberfest Tampa 2017
The annual Oktoberfest Tampa ushers in a beer garden, live music and dancing, with a waterfront setting. Happening the second weekend of the month at Curtis Hixon Park, the three-day festival is packed with fun.
Hyde Park Village Art Fair
The same weekend, Hyde Park sets the stage for two days worth of arts and crafts as part of the Hyde Park Village Art Fair. This free event offers the opportunity to view the work of more than 150 artists, with everything from paintings to sculptures and jewelry.
Tampa Pig Jig
Back to the waterfront, the Tampa Pig Jig takes on Downtown Tampa the last weekend of the month. The annual event is the place to go for great BBQ, live music, games and drinks. Proceeds from the event benefit NephCure, for medical research, future treatment and help in finding a cure for kidney disease.
