Summer in Little Bavaria promises an unforgettable experience. With unmatched scenes capturing and celebrating German culture at the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival and endless family fun at the Bavarian Volkswagen Festival, the town caters to every audience. Celebrate the start of the best summer yet by spending the first week of June in Michigan’s destination spot, Frankenmuth!



Even if you have never attempted Polka dancing or tried on a Lederhosen, the inviting and jubilant atmosphere of the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival from June 6 – June 9 will have you in on the fun in no time. As one of the only towns in the US that models traditional German architecture, culture, and spirit, the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival promises an exhilarating lineup of festivities that transport you straight to the heart of Bavaria- no passport required.  However, for the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival 2024 guest of honor, the Deputy General from Germany, a passport will be necessary for international travel! The festival is set to do no less than dazzle its attendees with vibrant parades, polka dancing, an array of German brews in the various beer tents, a Friday Night Street Party, and so many more activities catered toward all ages.



Adding to the multitude of exciting events throughout the first weekend of June is the Bavarian Volkswagen Festival on June 8 from 9 AM to 3 PM. With over 200 Volkswagens to see, the festival is the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing stroll through Frankenmuth River Place Shops before a night of polka dancing and camaraderie at the Frankenmuth Bavarian Festival.



Not only will there be Volkswagens, Lederhosens, and boatloads of beer but also Frankenmuth Cheese Haus is welcoming vacationers to the Cheese Haus Palooza for free family fun on June 8 from 12 PM-6 PM! Explore a variety of cheese-related vendors offering complimentary samples and witness the unveiling of a magnificent 600-pound cheese tower of our newest cheese named by YOU!



With all these exciting events happening, we know visitors will be working up an appetite. Don’t miss out on the fun by sitting indoors at a chain restaurant you’ve been to a million times but instead enjoy outdoor dining amidst the fun! Michigan on Main, Fischer Platz, and the Schnitzelbank Biergarten are the perfect spots to witness the fun and satiate your appetite!
