A Taste of Oktoberfest brings the sights, sounds and smells of an authentic German celebration to the Palm Beaches. One of the largest Oktoberfest celebrations in the country, the American German Club hosts the 48th edition of this popular annual event over the second and third weekend of every October. Highlights include multiple German bands, authentic German cooking, domestic and imported beer, a carnival and much more.

midst of their tours to Our Haus for this special event.
