New Volksfest at the Augusta Museum June 2

The Augusta History Museum’s first-ever Oktoberfest turned out to be a great success last year, but we thought it would be better to hold the event in June.

Now calling it Volksfest (people’s festival), where locals can join us for an afternoon outside in the friendship garden, while we serve an authentic German lunch. We hope to make this an annual event.

Hot off-the-grill brats from Williams Brothers Market, traditionally fermented sauerkraut, straight-from-the-oven pretzels, German potato salad, homemade pickles, and cookies will be served. Good News Brewing will offer beer samples to try out along with other refreshments. Join us at the museum on June 2, from 1 to 4 p.m., The museum suggests a donation of $5-10 per person to help raise funds for future outhouse plans.

Hope to see you there, Prost (cheers)!
