Our first ever Bavarian Fest Street Party takes place on Friday, June 8th of Bavarian Festival weekend from 5pm-10pm, you and your whole family won’t want to miss all of the excitement and fun of this free event!


Main Street will be closed to traffic and lined with fun from Covered Bridge Lane to Cass Street from 5-10pm. With free admission, all ages are welcome to come and enjoy the evening celebration.


Along with our delicious restaurants along Main Street, there will be an abundance of food and treat vendors lining the streets. Choose between Ice cream, popcorn, bbq pork, chicken, brats, and of course hot salty Bavarian-style pretzels… or try them all! And if you’re 21 years of age or older, you can get a wristband to enjoy drinks all evening long, right on Main Street.


Along with 5 inflatable games and a rock climbing wall, there will be a 300ft long zip line placed right in the middle of all the fun! Not to mention the Festival Olympics are going to take place right on Main Street as well, and you won’t want to miss that. Live music will also be playing at the Street Party along with Johnny Burke and the FOX 103.9. For those of you that are classic car fans, there will be a display of vintage Volkswagens and Porsches along the South end of Main Street. And to cap off our big celebration, a fireworks show will begin at 10pm.
