Move over Oktoberfest, Maifest is here! Yes, that does mean maypoles and queens and bier (lots of bier). A tradition that’s been cast aside for a while is a last being revived here in Columbus.
This Sunday, stop by the Valters at the Männerchor for wine and beer tastings, drinking games, food, raffles, and more.
Maifest is hosted by the Columbus Männerchor, a German singing group that began in 1848 with 12 immigrants bound by the motto: “Harmony—in song and in life—holds us together.” The choir has rehearsed every Tuesday night since its first chilly October meeting as the members huddled around candles.
So maybe you have a nostalgia for the Homeland. Or maybe you studied a couple years of German in high school. Or maybe you just really like beer and brats. In any case, here’s your excuse to put all that to use in German Village this weekend. Prost!
