Our second annual German Springfest is TODAY Saturday March 31 2-10 pm!
In the heart of beautiful Downtown Sanford
see our Blog for Event Map and Entertainment Schedule
(also see our Facebook Event)
Our outdoor German festival will feature German cuisine from Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café, German beer and wine, and entertainment by the Alex Meixner Band and our regular musical duo Jimmy & Eckhard.
Just like in Germany, our party will essentially be a spring version of Oktoberfest, complete with schnitzels and sausages, pretzels, beer, polka music, people dancing in Lederhosen and Dirndls…the idea is to re-create an Oktoberfest beer-tent sort of experience, only it’s right here in Magnolia Square! Our previous festivals have always been a hit, especially our last Oktoberfest - there's something about the atmosphere here in Sanford's historical district that really lends itself to making outdoor events like ours a lot of fun. It’s all about Gemütlichkeit – a German word that can be translated a number of ways, but we define it as the overall sense of well-being you experience while enjoying good food and drink among friends and family.
There is no cover or admission charge - Springfest is free to attend! However, tickets - we call them Hollerbucks - will be required for all of our special event outdoor food and drink at Springfest. Hollerbucks are $3 each (special pricing on select packages if ordered in advance!), and each location will be accepting 1, 2 or 3 Hollerbucks for each item. Outdoor food and beverage locations will not be accepting cash or credit cards - Hollerbucks will be available to purchase onsite the day of the event (cash or charge) at special ticket stands, or in advance by clicking the link above. We discovered during past events that this system works much better than accepting cash or cards at each food and beverage stand - and it works even better if you get your tickets in advance! See you at Springfest!
Im Übrigen: Our Willow Tree Café German restaurant, Magnolia Square Market deli, and Outfitter's Trachtenwear shop will be open with regular operating hours during Springfest - Hollerbucks tickets will not be required at these locations, just for food and beverage at the the outdoor event.
