Say auf wiedersehen to winter und hallo to spring at Maifest Chicago, while supporting the DANK Haus German American Cultural Center!
Fest visitors will enjoy a lively weekend full of German bands, dancers, and authentic German cuisine. Over four days, six bands will play traditional polkas, crowd-pleasing sing-a-longs, and classic hits. Sunday enjoy a full ethnic program of German dance groups, choirs, brass bands, and the Jesse White Tumblers. Entrance to Maifest is free and the street is full of neighbors and new friends enjoying the start of Chicago’s summer festival season.
DANK Haus is excited to be a vendor at Maifest, sharing our love of German culture, food, and fun with the public. Every sausage and stein you purchase from the DANK Haus booth supports arts and language programming at the Center. The menu may be the same at all the booths, but only your purchases on Western Avenue stay in Lincoln Square, Chicago’s German home, and helps the organization preserve German heritage for the entire Chicagoland community.
