It’s Wunderbar!  Come celebrate the 40th anniversary of Germanfest!

This year Germanfest will OFFICIALLY begin with a parade.  We will be parading the ceremonial first keg through downtown Fort Wayne.  MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!

Germanfest invites local and visiting dignitaries, sponsors and the public to participate in the traditional opening ceremony and the tapping of the first keg.  Attend the parade, ceremonies, enjoy the music and dine on the fine German food like traditional brats, hot off the grill, homemade sauerkraut, potato salad, and of course, the küchen (German cake) for dessert!
