Thank you to everyone who came out and supported Schwabenfest this year. We hope you had as much fun as we did!
Special shoutout to all of our volunteers who made this festival possible: those who worked our booths, the booth chairmen, Paulaner USA for bringing the Biergarten, everyone who helped set up and take down, all of the Omas (and those who helped) who baked all the deserts and cooked all the food, Saffire Express Band, The Prost Band and Alpen Echos Fan Page for providing the music, our dancers for performing on Saturday afternoon, everyone who helped out with the behind-the-scenes administrative work (such as the social media, the marketing, the website updates, the logistics of the festival…) and to everyone that we can’t think of at the moment.
Thank you for supporting the Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society, without your help, none of this would be possible! See you at our Oktoberfest in October and all of our other events throughout the year.
On Friday, May 31 come out and enjoy traditional German Gemütlichkeit and camaraderie at the Donauschwaben Hall for our Fifth Friday Froth Fest celebration. More information about entertainment, food and beer menu will be posted soon.

The purpose of this event is to offer an informal opportunity for Donauschwaben members and friends to socialize with one another, listen to great pre-recorded German music, share stories, play cards, and enjoy some delicious beer.
