Well once again it’s almost time for Octoberfest in Orlando 2010! Since the Orlando area is a big place there is no single event or place that defines Octoberfest. Many different towns in the Orlando area will have their own version of Octoberfest.
Also the many bars and nightclubs in the Orlando area will have Octoberfest nights and specials throughout the month of October. But there are a few Octoberfest events that happen every year and stand out more than others.
So below is a little list of the most popular Orlando Octoberfest events for 2010 that will be going on. I’ve put a link to most of them, but some you’ll just have to call or search for!
