5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The tradition continues!  On Saturday, September 21, 2019, from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., the Suncoast Credit Union presents the 2nd Annual SwantoberFest. Celebrate Oktoberfest-style in Munn Park in downtown Lakeland and make time to unwind, meet new friends, learn new customs and sing a few songs.

A variety of German food will be available such as weisswurst (white sausage), mini pork shanks, rotisserie chicken, and traditional sides. The Bier Tent will showcase Oktoberfest beers, hard cider, German beer such as Becks, plus other favorites like Stella Artois, and domestic beer like Budweiser and Michelob. A separate tent will have soft beverages available for purchase - bottled water and sodas. Activities include our German-style competitions - the Outrageous Olympiad! Compete in one or all - stein-hoisting, mustache competition, a partner brat toss, and a treasure hunt for the young at heart. Live music rounds out the event, featuring an authentic Oktoberfest band. Visit the Fields Motor Cars Autobahn to see German engineering and design.  Let your children play at the children's Kinder Platz Zone - or compete in fun games. Local restaurants, businesses, and organizations will be showcasing and selling their products and services. VIP passes will be available for an extra-special experience!
