The August 10 and 11 festival celebrates German heritage in the backdrop of the beautiful Catskills. You’ll learn how to polka dance, indulge in regional cuisine and drink, and maybe even learn a German word or two.

The fun begins at noon, Saturday, August 10. Admission is $12. Enjoy a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, and on Sunday, don’t miss polka mass at 11 a.m., featuring the Jimmy Sturr Orchestra.
