Bavarian Festival ready to kick off its 65th year

  The 65th annual Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival will begin in one week, with the Frankenmuth Civic Events Council (CEC) making the final preparations for the four-day event downtown and in Edwin Zehnder Park.

  The festival will operate Thursday through Sunday, June 6-9, and will be led by 2024 CEC President Brooke Chaffee. She has been on the CEC Board of Directors since 2014 and feels honored to be the president for the 65th annual celebration.

  “I wanted to join the Civic Events Council because of my German heritage and the City of Frankenmuth are both important to me. My great grandfather emigrated from Germany in 1913, leaving the family homestead in Eisenstadt and settling in the Reese area,” Chaffee said. “When my parents got married, they moved to Frankenmuth to raise me and my two brothers.”
