Inside the Deutschen Pfest area, jugglers entertain crowds near the playground at various times throughout the festival and the carnival rides are a hit for the whole family. Enjoy live music under the shade trees and play!

A petting farm, kiddie train, inflatables and puppet shows are all part of the children’s area at Deutschen Pfest which is located just outside the east gate at Gilleland Creek.
