West Bend Germanfest proceeds will build one new home for a deserving family in Washington or Dodge county annually. Attending West Bend Germanfest will help our organization serve neighbors in need! Learn more about our Mission here.
We Need Volunteers!
Interested in helping at GERMANfest? We need volunteers to set up/take down activities as well as manage booths. All of the proceeds of The West Bend GERMANfest will fund a Habitat for Humanity home in Washington or Dodge County. A successfully run event with plenty of volunteers will help us meet our goal.
Rebel Grace will once again kick off the West Bend Germanfest as the headliner Thursday night from 8 PM-11 PM. Polka Family is returning by popular demand for multiple shows both Friday and Saturday. A great polka band from Traverse City, MI called Box On is also returning for 2017. Many more polka bands will be featured so be sure to look at our line-up. Saturday night's headliner is the fun and energetic band The Playlist (formerly Rabid Aardvarks).
Great Food and Drink!
The 32nd annual Germanfest will feature German and domestic beers this year along with root beer floats and other non-alcoholic beverages. Wine is also available for purchase at the event. There will be a host of food vendors on site offering everything from authentic German cuisine to fresh wraps. Be sure to save room for our delectable, authentic, handmade German desserts!
