It is the 61st Anniversary of the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival and we have some special events in store for you. Be sure to check the schedule of events to make sure you don't miss anything!

The parade of all parades. Experience for yourself why locals call this one of their favorite days of the year and even go as far as proclaiming it a city holiday. German dancers, bands, floats and a good old fashion Bavarian time. 

A Bavarian tradition, “Masskrugstemmen” is a test of endurance in which contestants hold a full 1 liter stein at arm’s length for as long as possible. The last stein remaining held straight out, parallel to the ground, and with a locked elbow belongs to the winner.
