GermanFest is a celebration of German heritage featuring family-friendly events throughout the weekend! The biggest day of our activities is Saturday, with a few activities happening on Friday and Sunday. We’ve moved GermanFest to the last weekend in August and relocated to the Otoe County Fairgrounds for most of our Saturday activities to provide a cooler setting for attendees and vendors.
GermanFest is a fundraiser of the Syracuse Area Chamber of Commerce and proceeds also help fund next year’s event! GermanFest is also funded in part by the Otoe County Visitors Committee, as well as many sponsorships from many area businesses.
