Thank you to the Athenaeum Foundation for such a great German Fest for 2011. My family traveled from Louisville, Ky just to join the fun and were so glad we made the trip. This was truly an authentic German Fest from the people to the food. The beer garden is absolutely beautiful and the entertainment, from singing to dancing, was wonderful. Attendees were encouraged to participate making it fun for our eight year old daughter to enjoy authentic German dancing. We will definitely be back in 2012. Thanks again for such a great time for our entire family.” – RB, Louisville, KY

“Being at festivals year-round, German Fest stands out as my favorite because of the camaraderie & community-forward approach The A takes.” Jon Tower Akerman, Yelp Indianapolis Community Manager.
