Events


The Specktator is thrilled to have European Street Cafe as title sponsor of the online calendar!

As one of my favorite places to eat, drink and socialize in the the city, “E. Street” (as the cool kids call it) makes the perfect partner to help promote the best events happening in the city.

NOTE: This is a “curated calendar,” meaning I have personally reviewed each event and consider it to be of interest to the general public and/or something particularly compelling. It is important to know that businesses cannot buy a calendar entry. That said, if you have an event you would like considered for the calendar, send the pertinent information to whatsup@thespecktator.com.

And by the way, be sure to change the view from “month” to “stream” below. Unless you like being really annoyed.

Oktoberfest Jacksonville @ pin Anheuser-Busch Florida
Oct 12 @ 5:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Oktoberfest Jacksonville @ pin Anheuser-Busch Florida  | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

From event organizers: Oktoberfest Jacksonville at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Jacksonville, Florida, is a celebration of German cuisine, culture, games, activities and great beer.

Upgrade your experience with a VIP ticket or reserved table purchase. Oktoberfest Jacksonville is fun for the entire family—kids 12 and under are FREE!

Roll out the Barrel and Bring in the Fun. Join the Games of Oktoberfest and test your skills at the stein hoisting, barrel rolling, brat eating contest or enter your wiener dog into the wiener dog races.

My two cents: Because Oktoberfest.

Downtown Community Cleanup @ Lavilla's United Voice

Downtown Community Cleanup @ Lavilla's United Voice | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

From event organizer:

The Downtown Community Cleanup Project will invite every neighborhood organization and cleanup group in the city of Jacksonville to come together for LaVilla. If you’ve been asked to host this event, please accept it and help spread the word. We need as much help as we can get.

The Downtown Community Cleanup Project and the Fight Blight crew will provide enough trash bags, gloves, and tools for everyone, but feel free to bring your own.

Downtown Vision, Inc.’s amazing staff has Volunteered to help out on their day off! (((ROUND OF APPLA– USE))) I* will post photos of problem areas leading up to the event with a location so feel free to prepare for those specific areas (some need shovels and rakes) or just bring yourself, and we’ll tell you where to go.

From 9 AM – 4 PM every group in the DIA will meet at Lavilla’s United Voice at 311 W. Ashley St. From there we will focus on rehabilitating State and Union St and moving to adjacent designated neighborhoods. There are thousands of pounds of trash that needs to be removed. Together, it’s nothing.

In fact, I* bet we can move at least 2,500 pounds of trash in one Saturday.

Making Strides of Jacksonville @ TIAA Bank Field -East Club Plaza
Oct 13 @ 9:00 am
Making Strides of Jacksonville @ TIAA Bank Field -East Club Plaza | Jacksonville | Florida | United States

From event organizers: The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks raise awareness and funds to save lives from breast cancer. Each event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5 mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

From the opening ceremony to the post-walk entertainment, a Making Strides event is a celebration of survivors and opportunity to remember loved-ones lost. It’s a day that shouldn’t be missed and won’t be forgotten.

NOTE: There is no fee to sign up or join. This is a fundraising walk to fund the life saving mission of the American Cancer Society. Please consider making a tax deductible donation.

Registration will be on site, but pre-registration is highly encouraged.

My two cents: My mom died of breast cancer in 1981. She was 41 years old. Considering about 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, I don’t want anyone else to have to go through what my mom did. (A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.)
