Germanfest 2020 Cancelled for June 7-14 

Fort Wayne, IN – For 38 years, Germanfest Fort Wayne has been the premier summer ‘haus party’.  Thousands of attendees and hundreds of volunteers come together to enjoy tradition, drink, food, and fun at the annual festival celebrating the deep German heritage of Fort Wayne.  Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and in order to protect the health and safety of this loyal community, The Germanfest Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Germanfest Festival.  

The Germanfest Committee has always been proud to celebrate the deep German heritage of the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and looks forward to the greatest celebration yet next summer for the 40th Germanfest!

For the loyal Germanfest community, we are excited to bring you German-style fun virtually and make some special announcements! Tune in to or follow us on Facebook ( and Instagram (GermanfestFortWayne) so you don’t miss out.  

As the crisis diminishes, the committee hopes to plan a smaller scale German celebration later in the year.
