37th Annual MainStrasse Village Maifest, May 13, 14, 15.
Chosen as one of the Top Twenty Events for May 2015 by the Southeast Tourism Society and one of the Top Ten Festivals in Kentucky for the Spring of 2014 by the Kentucky Travel Industry Association, Maifest is based on the German tradition of welcoming the first spring wines. Maifest is the first major festival of the summer for the Tri-State region. The assortment of arts and crafts and international foods becomes the main course to attract approximately 125,000 area families and regional travelers.
Maifest fills over SIX city blocks along the tree-lined 6th Street Promenade, Main Street and Philadelphia Street, and extends into Goebel Park. The German park-like atmosphere creates the perfect backdrop for the variety of appealing food, drink and works by nearly 90 artisans and craftsmen. Be sure to visit the Kinderplatz, full of adventures and rides for the small children and the Amusement Midway filled with fun for the “older” kids and don’t miss the Street Chalk Art Contest near the Main Street Bier Garten on Saturday.
Quality live entertainment by top local performers will spread the festive mood throughout Maifest. Great music will be featured at the Goebel Park Stage, the Festival Stage, the Main Street Stage and the Goose Girl Stage. Take your pick – German, Pop, Classic Rock, Blues or Country – it’s your choice!
