Maifest in the Garden
Saturday, May 17th, 5:30 – 8:30pm

In the joyous spirit of the spring celebrations in wine country on the Rhine River, the Voelker Orth Museum hosts its annual Maifest in the Garden. Maifest celebrates the arrival of spring and the old traditions brought by immigrant families like the German-American Voelker family, to their new homes in America.

Come to a welcoming evening of Norman Curtis’ wonderful music, food and drink, art and Gemuetlichkeit (friendship) set in a beautiful garden. We fire up the grill and prepare a traditional maibowle punch, with sweet woodruff from the garden.

Admission for the evening is $30 and $25 for members, all inclusive. Advance purchase is suggested. In the event of rain, the program moves indoors. The Museum will be open for the evening.
