39th Annual Maifest 2018

Maifest is based on the German tradition of welcoming the first spring wines and is the first major festival of the summer for the Tri-State region. The assortment of arts and crafts and international foods becomes the main course to attract approximately 125,000 visitors.

Maifest fills over SIX city blocks along the tree-lined 6th Street Promenade, Main Street and Philadelphia Street, and extends into Goebel Park. The German park-like atmosphere creates the perfect backdrop for the variety of appealing food, drink and works by artisans and craftsmen. Be sure to visit our expanded Kinderplatz, full of adventures and rides for the small children. We are planning for more rides as well as new activities for children and families to enjoy together. And don't miss the Street Chalk Art Contest on Saturday.

Plans are also being made to open the Clock Tower for guided tours. If you've ever been curious about how it works and looks on the inside, this is the perfect opportunity!

This year we will be continuing the Village Showcase. Various MainStrasse retail shops and restaurants will fill the sidewalks along the Main Street corridor. Also, we will be expanding and adding new arts & crafts booths, as well as exciting new food options for you to enjoy. Follow us on Facebook where we are making announcements every time we add a new vendor to our festival family!

Quality live entertainment by top performers will spread the festive mood throughout Maifest. Great music of a variety of genres will be featured, along with traditional German music and dancing.

Hours are:
Friday, May 18 - 5pm to 11pm
Saturday, May 19 - Noon to 11pm
