2022’s Germanfest brings exciting changes. Saturday June 11 Familienfest will take over Headwaters Park West. Germanfest’s events, homecooked food and of course beer will be enjoyed on both sides of the park. The Wienerdog Nationals and new Black Forest Stone Challenge will take place at Headwaters Park West in addition to family and children’s activities.

The Chapman’s Germanfest Schwarzbier currently is fermenting at Chapman’s Brewing Company. 2022 marks the 3rd brewing of Germanfest’s own schwarzbier. Schwarzbier is dark or black lager with chocolate and coffee notes whose roots come from Thuringia and Saxony Germany. Chapman’s Germanfest Schwarzbier will be available in cans and on tap at the festival.

Germanfest is brought to you by the four local German Clubs; Fort Wayne Sport Club, Fort Wayne Turners, Fort Wayne Maennerchor/Damenchor and German Heritage Society. Each of these entities was founded by German immigrants, celebrates German-American culture and welcomes new members of any heritage. 

Dankeschön mit herzlichen Grüßen!
