Oktober Beer & Music Festival


Oktober Beer & Music Festival at San Pedro Square Market

Sunday October 9th, 2016 from 2-8pm


This year we are taking our 4th annual Oktober Beer Fest to a new level.  For our longest running event this year we are focusing on:

More beer!  More fun! Less

What does this mean for you?  It means that we will be featuring 3 bands this year and activating the entire Market instead of only the Sidewalk Cafe.  We will have games in different areas throughout the Market.  The event will be moving to Sunday (who doesnt love Sunday Funday!).  It gets even better!  Instead of two beers for your $30 (for advance purchase) everyone will receive three beers this year at the same price.  

So what does it all mean?  It means you get more bands, more beer, more space, less wait times (for food, beer, and restrooms) and more fun all for the same advanced purchase price as last year.

Tickets are limited so reserve your spot in advance.

$30 dollars in advance.  $50 dollars at the door (if there are any left). Don't miss out! Get your tickets now!
