Maifest (pronounced “My–fest” in German, and also called May Fest in English) is the traditional celebration of the arrival of spring. The Maibaum (Maypole) is decorated to honor a town or village’s local history, produce, and crafts, and is the focus of the traditional Maypole Dance and the crowning of the Maikönigin (May Queen).
If you love to dance, there will be a lively band playing traditional music. Dancers in traditional dress perform Schuhplattler and other dances popular at seasonal festivals in Germany and Austria. Add to that a menu of authentic German/Austrian foods, and of course, excellent imported and domestic beers and other drinks, and you have a fun-filled day that is sehr gemütlich (very pleasant) for all ages.
