Oktoberfest may officially take place in September and several places already head Oktoberfest events like the Oktoberfest Beer Fest this past Saturday at The Patio, but here in Tampa, we like to make our big events take up an entire season.  See Gasparilla as an example. Gasparilla has grown to include major festivals across three months.  Now Oktoberfest will likely just take place in September and October for years to come, but that doesn't mean we can't cram in several quality festivals and events.
