The Picnic is in Shelter 1 and the gathering begins at 11:00am with a potluck lunch served at 12:00 Noon
Bring a dish to share and enjoy delicious German specialties. It is a great time to visit with old friends and make new ones.
The Hermann Fest is also going on next to our picnic.
Dance to live German music throughout the day, snack on some German and American food, and refresh with Schell’s beer and 1919 Root Beer – on tap all day! Festivities begin at 11:30am.
Be sure you check out the event highlights: Thunder In The Valley by the New Ulm Battery and New Ulm Municipal Band (cannon shoot with 11 guns!) at 6 pm, and the Fantastic Fireworks over the Hermann Monument at 8:30 pm. Music continues into the night.
