Germanfest: September 4 in Caras Park!

Arts Missoula GLOBAL presents Germanfest, the annual celebration of Missoula’s Sister City partnership with Neckargemünd, Germany, on Sunday, September 4th in Caras Park in downtown Missoula.  Admission free.

History of Germanfest

Germanfest began in 1993, with a Pledge of Friendship signed between the two cities by their mayors at the time. Since then, nearly 500 Neckargemünd high school students have come to Missoula, while students who call the Garden City home have had a chance to spend several months in its southern Germany counterpart.

Germanfest Features:

Authentic German Food & Beer

Live Music

Authentic German Steins

Children’s Activities & Sister City Display


Germanfest is produced by Arts Missoula GLOBAL with the help of the University of Montana German Department and many dedicated volunteers. For more information on available shifts and to sign up, contact us via email at or give us a call at 406.541.0860.
