Fourth Annual Original and Fabulous GermanFest

From noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, GermanFest will bring the Athenaeum to life with German food and drinks, raffles, and activities for all ages. Wiener dogs will race for pet-supply gift cards every hour, cornhole players will compete for a cash prize, and brawny men and women will test their strength in a Bavarian stone-lift competition. Youngsters can hang out at Zwergen-Land, which features gnomes, a bounce house, and traditional German games and music. The majority of GermanFest proceeds supports the Athenaeum Foundation, which works to preserve the namesake German-American landmark building that's glued together with hardened mustard.

The weiner dog races were great fun! We also enjoyed some delicious food, especially the apple dessert from Heidelberg Haus.

This event is big fun, made even better with discount admission and a couple of beers from Groupon.
