Saturday, Sept. 2

Guten Tag to the 21st Annual German Heritage Festival! The German Heritage Society of Erie hosts the festivities, with their goal being the “preservation of our German heritage, the language, traditions, culture, and music.” Back in 1996, the German Heritage Society was established to provide more insight into German culture through music, food and dance, and they have been doing just that for 21 years. There will be performances from accordionist Kirk Hamza, Apple Strudel Gang, The Mad Bavarian Bob Hamilton, Hank Haller Band, and the Alpen Schuhplatter Dancers. There will also be a petting zoo, bounce houses, train rides, and authentic German food, not to mention pints of world-famous German beer. Visit Germany without going halfway around the world with the German Heritage Festival! — Austin Mitchell

11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday // St. Nick’s Grove, 5131 Old French Rd. // general admission $5 // dank-erie.com
