Volksfests or People’s Fests began in Germany.  There is typically at least one Volksfest in many larger German cities each year.  Stuttgart is considered to host the largest Volksfest in the world.  German emigrants to the United States brought the tradition of the Volksfest with them.  The Peoria German American Society has hosted a Volksfest at their club grounds since the 1930’s.  Tentative Entertainment Lineup includes  Vogel Musik, Al’s Pals, and Lindenhof Echoes.  No outside coolers are permitted.  Only service animals are allowed.
