Welcome to our local festival “where Texas hospitality and German customs meet!” Enjoy free admission and free parking.This year's festival has underwent a few changes. The Weimar Gedenke Cook-Off teams will kick off this year's event on Friday, May 10th. However, the majority of our activities will be held on Saturday, May 11th. The Fun Run will set the festival in motion early Saturday morning. Everyone is invited for fun, music, games, good food, and great bands! Don't forget to slip on your cowboy boots for some dancing!  Gedenke is where we meet up with ole' friends and make some new ones.  Come share in the wonderful German heritage that makes this community so great.   See y'all this Mother's Day Weekend.
