Germanfest Picnic returns for 2021 in historic St. Anne's Hill
Germanfest has been voted #3 festival in the region and were named by the Dayton Daily News as being in the top 11 food festivals in the region.
There are a few festivals that celebrate German traditions around the city, but this fest dives deeper, to give a glimpse of the German heritage that has given Dayton some of its cultural identity – all while enjoying an import beer and a schnitzel.
The Germanfest Picnic is back with all the Gemuetlichkeit and many of the activities our visitors have come to know and love: lots of that delicious homemade German food, plenty of fantastic German and domestic bier and wein, your favorite bands playing in the biergarten, the Polka Mass, Culture Display, Kinder Korner and food and craft vendors.
The heart of the festivities is the Dayton Liederkranz Turner Clubhouse at 1400 E. Fifth Street in one of Dayton’s original German neighborhoods, with the footprint of the festival extending to include part of East Fifth Street from Keowee to Dutoit Streets.
Check back closer to the 2022 festival for an entertainment schedule.
