66th Annual Posen Potato Festival
Polish immigrants who settled in the town of Posen, in the US state of Michigan, brought with them their national passion for potatoes, which grow well in the area's deep, sandy soils. The end of the harvest season is celebrated at the Posen potato festival which features free concerts, children's entertainment, a potato cooking contest and selection of the Miss Posen beauty queen.
September 14-17, 2017 - The Frankenmuth Oktoberfest
In 1996, Lord Mayor Christian Ude of Germany officially sanctioned the Frankenmuth Octoberfest celebration, making it the first city outside of Munich to receive such an honor. In homage, Munich-based brewer Hofbrauhaus became the festival’s official sponsor, making this the first city in the U.S. to import the German Beer. Dubbed Michigan’s Little Bavaria, the city is as head-to-toe German as an American city can get, from its cuckoo-clock store to the Harvey Kern Community Pavilion, a scaled-down version of an authentic German beer hall. The German bands performs annually and authentic German fare is served daily. The music and entertainment begins around noon and ends as late as midnight. Wiener-dog races are always a crowd pleaser at the Oktoberfest. Fifty to 100 dachshunds are positioned on one side of the pavilion floor and let loose in the hopes that they’ll race to the other side.
