“With the current restrictions in place on outdoor entertainment in the State of Minnesota due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer an authentic experience that meets the expectations of our guests and our brand this year”, Ryan Kern, President of Kern and Kompany Marketing and Special Events said in a press release. 

The inaugural event was held at Bayfront Festival Park in 2019. 

The German heritage event is a celebration with music, dancing, games, food, and beverages reflective of the culture.

Next year’s event is scheduled for September 17-19, 2021 at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth, MN.

No refunds or rainchecks will be issued for the event as tickets for 2020 had not gone on sale to the public at the time of the announcement.
