Mayfest (Maifest in German) is the traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring. Maifest is still celebrated throughout Germany with the maypole (maibaum) decorated to show off the history and crafts of the local village or town.

Mayfest, like Octoberfest, has now become a popular celebration throughout the world. Chicago’s German community welcomes all to their Mayfest in Lincoln Square; the heart of Chicago’s German Community.

The 14th annual German festival features live music and maypole dancing, German food, and beer. A traditional keg tapping and the crowning of the year’s Mayfest queen mark Friday’s opening ceremony.
May 30th-June 2nd
