“Germanfest” is not based on the Bavarian Oktoberfest in southern Munich, Germany. The event is actually based on the City of Sioux Falls celebrating the whole country of Germany and our long-standing partnership with the City of Potsdam.
Sister Cities is a viable means of creating positive social change and urges countries around the world to share and understand their culture through such relationships. Sister Cities Association of Sioux Falls are raising funds in order to create scholarships for students and support other cultural relationships.
The event is organized by a small group of volunteers who want to give back to the community by having a free festival for everyone to attend. Although Sioux Falls is a small town, it’s filled with big hearts. It’s the people of Sioux Falls who can make one small event worthwhile.
