Music will be provided by Rhine Valley Brass, Ratskeller Band and The Schnapps Band from Cinn. Ohio. You must be 21 to enter after 2:30 and have two pieces of ID. Saturday is Kids Day starting at 11:30 am.


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.

2. It's held in a Ratskeller. (According to Wikipedia, a Rathskeller is German for a bar or restaurant located in the basement of a city hall (Rathaus) or nearby)

3. Many of the Evansville Germania Maennerchor hosts wear traditional German apparel including lederhosen.
