The German festival of Maifest has been a tradition in Hermann Missouri for many years. The streets are filled with dancing and music and food as travelers from all over visit our beautiful town. The main reason for the Maifest celebration is to welcome spring and hope for a bountiful harvest.
Each year in Hermann, visitors anticipate the sights during Maifest. In the middle of the street the Maipole is surrounded by children with ribbons ready to decorate and unwind the previous colors and dance around the pole accompanied by German music.
