Festivals & Events
Festival season isn’t really a season in Frankenmuth. It’s all year long, and they’re all kinds of fun.
And, to be honest? We couldn’t throw a small party if we tried (so we don’t). We just raise the big striped tents (and fill them); roll the German pretzels (then devour them); tap the Hofbräuhaus kegs (and most definitely empty those, too).
Been waiting all year for Bavarian Festival? Ready to see 2,500+ classics roll into Auto Fest, or raise a stein at our traditional Oktoberfest? Maybe you’ll be Bringin’ Back the 80's in April, tossing back your tasting mug at the World Expo of Beer in May, or seeing sky-scraping art carved before your eyes at Zehnder’s Snowfest in January.
And did we mention the world’s largest Olympic-style festival for dogs? Frankenmuth Dog Bowl is four days of Memorial Weekend fun (paired with Balloons Over Bavarian Inn) and it’s epic for more than the ones on four legs!
Plan ahead below (and plan on multiple trips) to pack in all the fun of our top annual festivals in Frankenmuth — plus hundreds of other events each year that only add to the experience!

It's still on! Join us for Zehnder’s Snowfest (limited event) during the last weekend in January. Although Snowfest will be different this year, visitors can still enjoy a limited number of larger-than-life snow sculptures and beautifully detailed ice carvings!
