2016 Buffalo German Fest
Culture is the spice of life! We invite you this Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and 4th, to immerse yourself in German Heritage and celebrate Gemütlichkeit!
People from across the Greater Buffalo-Niagara region with cultural roots reaching back to the countries of Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland will be in attendance with many more festival goers who simply have an interest in music, food, and culture. “Gemütlichkeit simply means, “being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, with the right people.” Where else would you rather be than at Cheektowaga Town Park eating and drinking authentic German beer and cuisine, listening to four different authentic bands, participating in contests and games, and partying for a weekend with nearly 5,000 of your friends and family!
Only $4.00 for pre-sale tickets or $6.00 at the gate, children 12 and under free.
