Set your calendar for Maifest, Germantown’s unique celebration of its German heritage. It happens this weekend as the Deutschadt Heritage Foundation presents Maifest, May 17-19, 2019 in Friedenfeld Park. This is one event you dont’ want to miss.
Join the Germantown Kiwanis Club and other local organizations as we observe the annual tradition of Maifest. It is a German festival featuring music, dancing, crafts, authentic food and drink celebrating Spring and the Planting Season. Come on over to the brat stand on the west side of the tent and order your locally produced bratwurst and hungarian sausage sandwiches. Or have a great potato pancake with breakfast sausages, served all day on Saturday and Sunday. We are also serving hamburgers and hot dogs all weekend.
On Friday night the Maifest headline musical group is a local favorite, Rebel Grace. Come over for the fish fry and stay to enjou some great country rock music starting at 8 PM.
Meet Miss Wisconsin from 6 PM until 10 PM.
On Saturday, the array of original German traditional and polka music will be amazing. Enjoy the sheepshead tournament from noon till 4 PM (both Saturday and Sunday.) Then stay for The Squeezettes, a headline polka band, 8 PM until 11:30 PM.
On Sunday, the Kenny Brandt Band will headline, 5 PM to 7:30 PM. But early in the day there will be polka bands and traditional German dancing all day.
