August is the New October – Join the Evansville Germania Maennerchor for the 52nd Annual Volksfest 2013
Germania Mannerchor Volkfest
916 N. Fulton Ave, Evansville, IN 47710
August 1 – 3, 2013
Kraut, sausages, bands and beer gardens. You’ll find all that and lederhosen, too! The Germania Mannerchor Volksfest is an Evansville tradition that celebrates our German Heritage starting at lunch and ending well into the evening. 21+ after 2 p.m.
My personal favorite are the krautballs. If you’ve never had a piece of this deef-fried goodness, you really need to get over there and order a few! Admission is free before 5 PM and bands will be playing all day and evening each day!
Three things you probably didn’t know about Volksfest:
1. It began in 1934 here in Evansville but took a hiatus from 1941-1962 due to WWII.
3. Many of the Evansville Germania Maennerchor hosts wear traditional German apparel including lederhosen.
