And we need your help!!! Our most influential event of the year is once again upon us, Maifest 2016! Maifest is traditionally our biggest summer event while spreading good German music….and beer! Every year Rheinischer Verein hosts a fantastic food and beer tent with live music to help bring the German party spirit to Chicago.
We can’t put together this amazing show without help from our club members…but don’t fret, working at the booth has always been considered as much of a treat as the event itself.
Starting Thursday June 2nd through Sunday June 5th we will be looking for fun-loving volunteers to help us serve in our renowned food and beer tent. Follow the link to sign up for this blast of an event and we look forward to seeing you all there!
