Old European Days & Bierfest..... June 27th and 28th, 2015 Akron German Family Society

Come out and experience a genuine German Fest at the Akron German Family Society!!

The 2015 Old European Days & Bierfest will be held on Saturday June 27th from 3-11pm and Sunday, June 28th from 1-7pm at the Akron German Family Society, located just a few minutes south of Kent, Ohio.
Donau Park and its beautiful landscaping of flowers and hedges sets the stage for a magnificent celebration as you hear live polka music and enjoy delicious German foods.
Visit our "new" outside Kuchen Haus (Dessert/Cake house).

The scenery is captivating, not to mention the many people that are enjoying the live bands, inside the club building as well as outside in the pavilion. As nightfall approaches, new lighting inside and outside, will thoroughly illuminate the European Fest event.

As you wander throughout the grounds, the smiling faces of the hundreds of volunteers invite you to take part in the dancing and to join in something far greater. For the heritage and rich traditions are flowing from the homemade foods such as schnitzel, Sarma (cabbage rolls), sausage, German potato salad, and desserts are so easily enjoyed. The rotisserie chicken is also widely sought after. The guests become intertwined with this true connection with German customs and the love of family.

The Akron German Family Society is proud of their four dance groups Kindergruppe, Junior Youth Group, Youth Group, as well as "adult" Tanzegruppe. These groups will perform on Saturday and Sunday for your enjoyment! Fr. David Misbrener will be presiding over our Kirchweih Mass on Sunday at 11:30 in the outside pavilion. There will be many games, fun, and an inflatable bounce house and much more for the children on Sunday afternoon.

Our European Fest soon becomes a part of each and every guest having the pleasure of partaking in the foods, music, and dancing.
The senses are enlivened through the event with sights, smells, sounds, as old friendships are enriched and new friendships are made.
Come join us at Old European Bier Fest on June 27th and 28th!
