Yesterday was the start of the 53rd annual Volksfest that will take place August 7, 8, 9th. This year’s event include a re-dedication of their beautiful 100 year old Germania Maennerchor building, which was built in 1914. To find the event, all you have to do is make your way down to 916 Fulton Ave., Evansville, IN. Germania Maennerchor was a German Singing organization that started 114 years ago.

At the Volksfest, visitors can enjoy being a little German for three days. There will be great German music, food, dancing and singing. There will be three great German Bands every night as well as German food that only the membership makes.

Harold Griese, Volksfest Media Chairman shares “We have had German dancing for years at all of our events, [and it is a great way] to meet friends and family for some Great German Fun! If you have not been in this Beautiful 100 year old building you are missing Evansville's German Heritage!”
