German Festival in Cleveland

German Festival in Cleveland

May 18th, 2012 by Staff Report in Chattnow Outabout

Bavaria meets East Tennessee Southern hospitality Saturday when Maifest is held on the First Street square, 225 First St., in Cleveland, Tenn., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Maifest is a German celebration of spring. There will be German music, food ($8 plate), children's activities ($5) and dress. Last year, several Wacker Chemical employees came dressed in their lederhosen and dirndles to add to the festival's authenticity.

Maifest is a fundraiser for Montessori Kinder International School's new building, needed to accommodate the school's rising enrollment.
