clothing and more. Baked goods, chocolates, and other great delicacies round out the
food offerings. All items are for sale to enjoy at Volksfest or to take home and enjoy
So dust off your lederhosen and starch up your Bavarian dirndl (or if you are lacking in
the Bavarian attire, go see our friends at Touch of Bavaria to buy one) and join us for
a fun-filled, three-day celebration of the Wurst (Sausage) at Volksfest.

award scholarships, sponsorships and other donations. It also allows us to fill the gap

First Citizen Announcement
Due to feedback from the community and the First Citizen committee, the Chamber of Commerce has made the difficult decision to not have the First Citizen Award Banquet in 2020 and to change this event from being an annual event to bi-annual or less frequent.
This change does not affect our annual Junior First Citizen Award and scholarship. This will still be done on an annual basis, with applications going out in the spring and a winner announced at the beginning of May.
Thank you to all our former First Citizens and other awardees. You make this community a better place and we are so thankful for you and everything you do! If you have suggestions or feedback for the frequency of the event or the event in general, please email email@example.com.
