Frankenmuth Oktoberfest 2017

On October 12, 1810, Crown Prince Ludwig of Munich, Germany, married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, and the citizens were invited to attend the celebration held on the fields in front of the city gates.  Afterward it was decided that the horse races held during this celebration would be repeated the following year, creating the new tradition of Oktoberfest.

More amusements were added to this yearly event, which generated an increase in visitors, and now Oktoberfest is known as the largest festival in the world.  In 1996, Frankenmuth’s Oktoberfest became the first to operate with the blessing of the original festival in Munich.  Now you can experience Frankenmuth’s unique German heritage and join the festivities on September 14-17, 2017 in Heritage Park.

History Comes to Life at Frankenmuth’s Cass River Colonial Encampment

FRANKENMUTH, Mich. June 20, 2017 — Visitors to Frankenmuth River Place Shops will have a chance to experience history like never before on July 15 and 16, during the annual Colonial Encampment.

This all-day event will feature tactical battle reenactments, a flag raising, musket firing, period concerts, games, a fashion show and many other events. Visitors will be able to tour military camps and shop at historical vendors.

With more than 250 actors, the annual event, which is free to attend, reenacts troops from the Revolutionary and French and Indian wars battling each other with everything from cannons to bare hands. Lighter moments are also featured, with historical actors playing voyageurs exploring the vast American wilderness from those times.

Frankenmuth’s Cass River property features a historic wooden bridge, which provides a perfect backdrop for this event.

“This event is a fun learning experience for the whole family,” said Michael Keller Zehnder, Cass River Encampment Event Coordinator and General Manager of the Bavarian Inn Lodge, who is thrilled to see history come to life.

If you are interested in participating in this family-fun event, reenactors can contact Brent Kemmer at kemmerc@hotmail.com Voyagers can contact Merlyn Hodge at lafalcon@tds.net.
