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.
After a year of downsizing due to Covid restrictions, 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 for 2021 is the Dayton Liederkranz Turner Clubhouse at 1400 E. Fifth Street in one of Dayton’s original German neighborhoods, but the footprint from last year has been expanded to include part of East Fifth Street from Keowee to Dutoit Streets. Plenty of free parking is available on Saturday and Sunday in the lots at Stivers HS and all weekend long at the SOITA lot at the corner of Keowee and Fifth Streets. Just follow the yellow signs. Covid protocols will be observed as required so everyone can enjoy this highlight of the summer.
