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!
We have a need for many volunteers to help set up, run and take down all of the West Bend Germanfest activities. Since all the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity of Washington and Dodge Counties, your help will build homes for local deserving families.
