The 6th annual Oakhurst Germanfest will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday March 10 at the Oakhurst Community Center.
Sponsored by the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce, the event will feature authentic German food and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Yosemite High School swim programteam.
According to chamber President Melanie Barker, this year’s event will feature a twist on past year’s Germanfest menus by changing the cuisine to include different food stations where guests can sample from a pretzel bar, salads, Bratwurst, Curry Sausage, Sauerkraut, Berrocks and an amazing dessert bar featuring mini Bundt cakes, black forest cupcakes and Strudel to finish off the evening.
“We are looking forward to the best Germanfest event yet,” Barker said. “We’ve updated and added to the menu, created some signature drinks and we can’t wait to see everyone decked out in their Germanfest best.”
Guests are encouraged to wear a German themed outfit, and those doing so will receive a free ticket good for one beverage of their choice.
Raffle tickets will be sold during the event for the chance to win prizes including a large flat screen television donated by Dr. Robert Brosi.
To make the evening complete, a German Band will perform throughout the evening.
Community center doors open at 6 p.m. with the raffle scheduled to begin at 8.
Tickets cost $35 per person or $240 for a table of 8.
