Media Attendees

What is a Maifest?

Just in case you're left wondering what Maifest(My-Fest) means: also referred to as ‘May Fest’ in English, it is a German folk festival celebrating the arrival of spring--similar to the Oktoberfest harvest festival in the fall. In Bavaria, festival-goers dress in traditional costume and enjoy beer and food around the garland-festooned Maibaum (maypole).
