Countdown to Maifest
Join us 22 May 2021
Maifest is our annual celebration of spring. During this fest, we celebrate the variety of local cultures within Germany, as well as the arrival of warmer weather, and a bit more Bock beer before it’s all gone. Join us for dance performances, live bands, and German food.
This year we will be bringing back an OLD tradition. Prior to the second world war, the German-American community in Omaha would always crown a Maikoenig and -Koenigen (May King and Queen). It was always a big to-do with a full court and royal treatment. We’re bringing that back this year, but scaled down. Anyone is welcome to enter their name for consideration; we simply ask that you wear some sort of Tracht (German folk costume), and be there when we select the winner. Winners will be formally crowned and presented with some prizes.
