Oldsmar’s most popular event happens in the fall when the Top of the Bay Oktoberfest occurs. A huge big-top tent is filled with an enthralling celebration featuring authentic German music, food and drink. Countless locals and visitors enjoy contests, games, special dances, auctions and other activities as the festivities stretch over several late fall days and nights.
Another tradition and the longest running annual community festival occurs each March on the waterfront at R.E. Olds Park—the Oldsmar Days & Nights festival. The festival includes a parade, a classic car show, rides, games and all of the old-fashioned carnival delights for three days in early spring. The event also features live music, 5K and 10K races, historical exhibits and a traditional buffalo wing cook-off awarding local backyard culinary artists with prizes for flavor, creativity and heat. These are only two of the many exciting events that take place in the Oldsmar area each year.
