|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until October 18, 2015

Grab your lederhosen and join Bok Tower Gardens for the 7th Annual Boktoberfest Plant Sale on Saturday & Sunday, October 17-18 from 8am to 5pm.

Enjoy over 45 plant vendors, live German entertainment, clown shows, German food, craft beers, tree climbing, children’s activities, petting zoo, live carillon music, guest speakers, and much, much more!

Boktoberfest celebrates the start of Florida’s gardening season where plant lovers and gardeners can come to find a wide variety of Florida plants and learn from experts to help make the most of their garden.

Some of the plants being offered include orchids, palms, trees, tropical fruits, Florida natives, ferns, bamboo, roses, heliconias, bromeliads, tillandsia air plants and water lilies. Education will be provided by Master Gardeners, plant societies, garden clubs, and the UF/IFAS Extension Service. Expert gardeners will host free educational workshops throughout the day.

This year’s festivities will again feature the Jimmy & Eckhard Oktoberfest Show, a three-member lederhosen ensemble performing authentic German music. A Boktoberfest favorite, the group plays instruments from Germany, Austria and Switzerland including long Swiss alphorns the size of trees, a wooden Alpine xylophone often referred to as “wooden laughter;” the “Singing Saw,” and many more.

Children can experience the thrill of scaling one of Bok Tower Gardens’ tall live oak trees! Climb more than 40 feet above the ground or just sit in the harness for a bird’s eye view of the upper canopy and Singing Tower carillon.
