The MainStrasse Village Association, Covington, Kentucky, will present the 33rd annual MainStrasse Village Maifest on May 18, 19, and 20.
Chosen as one of the Top Twenty Events for May 2012 by the Southeast Tourism Society and one of the Top Ten Festivals in Kentucky for the Spring of 2011 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 German and international foods and beverages becomes the main course to attract about 125,000 area families and regional travelers. Specialty and domestic beers can be found throughout the festival.
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 over 75 artisans and craftsmen.
And 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. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you can purchase an “All You Can Ride” bracelet for just $15. Bracelets may be purchased from opening until 9pm on Friday and will be valid until 10pm Friday only. Saturday and Sunday bracelets may be purchased from opening until 5pm and will be valid until 6pm the day of purchase only.
There is quality live entertainment by top local performers – German, Pop, Classic Rock, Blues or Country.
