Weekend Top 6 Picks for Aprtil 28th and 29th

Saturday April 28, 2018
10 a.m. to 9 p.m. $5 Oktoberfest. German American Society, 381 Orange Ln, Casselberry, FL 32707. The most authentic Oktoberfest in Central Florida. What makes the festival stand out above others is the dedication to providing authentic and traditional German music, food, beer, and entertainment. You will find a live band playing German music in the Fest hall as well as a large outdoor beer garden. The food menu offers home cooked schnitzels, sauerbraten, goulasch, wursts, potato salad, potato pancakes and more. These items are prepared and cooked by German American Society members. The plentiful bars offer genuine Hofbräu beers imported from Germany as well as wine, German schnapps, and liquors. The Orlando Trachtenverein provides traditional Bavarian dancing and entertainment on our large dance floors.
Vendor partners provide additional food items, German/Bavarian clothing and souvenirs, children's activities such as bounce house, face painting, and more. The drink ware tent offers a selection of steins, glassware, and boots you can purchase and take with you to the beer tents.
Due to the popularity of this event and limited space, presale tickets are offered as a discounted price that will guarantee your admission. Same day walk-up tickets are also available on a first come, first serve basis. Parking is available at the end of Orange lane through a 3rd party for a $5 fee. There are limited disabled parking only spots on our property. Other business around the area also offer parking.

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. SPRING ART SALE (Just in time for Mother’s Day!) Crealdé Main Campus 600 St. Andrews Blvd Winter Park, FL 32792. Crealdé artists sell their work.

5 p.m. to 9 p.m.  Paint Out Garden Party. Part of the Witer Park Paint Out. Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens, 633 Osceola Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789.  Dress in comfy shoes--it’s a LONG night and it can get very warm in the gallery with so many people (400+)! There is no dress code, but I’d say cabaña chic/garden cocktail attire. Artists will be mingling with guests and engaging folks in conversation about their art. This is their night to shine and showcase your body of work that you worked so hard to produce!

the Sun Trust parking lot a few block away.
