Established in 2006, to honor the history of St. Peter’s Lutheran–the Big Rapids Germanfest has strived for one thing: to provide our patrons with a first class, authentic German celebration.

This is not a hot dog and domestic beer party like some supposed “German” parties. Rather, the intent is to have an enjoyable evening featuring a real German dinner buffet, real imported Bier and Wein, and dancing to real German music on our spacious wooden dance floor—all under 20,000 square feet of “Big Top” tents.GF-Banner-web-1
