Founded in 1983, Dayton’s Germanfest Picnic is a 3-day celebration of the Miami Valley’s rich German heritage. German food, plenty of fantastic German and domestic bier and wein, your favorite bands playing in the biergarten, the Polka Mass, Culture Display, Kinder Korner and food and craft vendors.
The heart of the festivities is the Dayton Liederkranz Turner Clubhouse at 1400 E. Fifth Street in historic St. Anne’s Hill, one of Dayton’s original German neighborhoods. The footprint of the festival stretches along East Fifth Street from Keowee to Dutoit Streets.
Plenty of free parking is available on Saturday and Sunday in the lots at Stivers High School and all weekend long at the SOITA lot at the corner of Keowee and Fifth Streets. Just follow the yellow signs.
