Traverse City Germanfest Goes Curbside, Adapts to COVID-19

Although this year will look different than previous celebrations, TC Germanfest is bringing authentic German foods (and brews!) curbside on Friday, September 25 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Traverse City.

The menu for the big folks is Bavarian ribs, German potato salad, brats and sauerkraut—and don’t forget about dessert! For wee ones, a hot dog, buttered noodles and kids-size dessert. Reserve your takeout order now and pick them up between 4–8 p.m. on the day of the event. Adult meals are $15 and kids’ meals are $3. You can also purchase the “day of” adult meal for $20, but be sure to use cash or check.

Yes, you can still dress up! In fact, they’re giving out prizes to those who arrive curbside to pick up their meals wearing lederhosen and/or dirndls, a gift of appreciation to those who deck out their cars in any and all things German and a token of admiration to folks who pullup blasting Bavarian tunes from their car radio! Plus, if you head over to Blue Goat and Provisions with your Germanfest tickets, you’ll receive a 15% discount on German beer and wine pairings!

View wine and beer add-on options, and find out more about the wine discount.

Check out the online auction (details coming soon, watch tcgermanfest.org for updates) from September 18–26 to support Trinity Lutheran School.
