Milwaukee German Fest
Break out the lederhosen, polish your stein, and track down your fanciest sausage-eating bib; Milwaukee German Fest is just around the corner. Now in its 36th year, the annual celebration honors Deutchland and all of its descendants with a three-day party filled with authentic food, music, and activities. More than 20,000 freshly grilled brats from Usinger's anchor a menu of schnitzel, goulasch, and other Bavarian favorites, all of which wash down nicely with gulps of Leinenkugel and other spirited beverages. However, the fest is about more than just feasting. Enjoy a thrill as jets shoot overhead during an air-and-water show before cheering on your favorite wiener at the dachshund derby or scoping out traditional song and dance performances by local groups. Throughout the weekend, vendors will showcase everything from nutcrackers to German costumes, and–at regular intervals–the living Glockenspiel will springs into action with a full band.
