The 38th annual Germanfest takes place Friday, April 26th through Sunday, April 28th, 2013, in Muenster, Texas. It's a three-day-long festival with German food and fun activities for adults and children.
Muenster was founded in 1889 by people of German heritage and Catholic faith. This unique German community located in North Texas, population of approximately 1,500, is a close-knit family in both kinship and kindred spirit.
This family, of common heritage and faith, throws one of the biggest German food and drink events in Texas, Germanfest, the last full weekend in April. This three-day festival attracts thousands to taste mouthwatering German sausage, scrumptious apple strudel, hearty cheeses and homemade bread, cakes and pies. So, go to Muenster and let them be your host for food, fun and frolic. Be sure to bring a "guten apetit."
You can plan to participate in one or more of their exciting activities. Events include:
- A 5k and 15k Germanfest Fun Run
- Metric Century Bicycle Rally
- Sausage and Rib Cook-Off
- Other assorted competitions
There will be entertainment for the whole family, including mimes, magicians, clowns and storytellers, or the Karneval and Kinder Theater for the children, while Mom and Dad delight in dancing, music, arts and crafts, a rock-climbing wall, folk dancing, and two stages with non-stop entertainment.
Located on U.S. Highway 82, 14 miles west of I-35, about 70 miles north of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Muenster is waiting to welcome you to their community and entertain you at Germanfest.
