The heritage of Bockfests celebrate the change in season. During these regional traditions in the Germanic world, much beer is consumed and much celebration is done. Thus, we begin our tradition, a festival to celebrate the 5th season. That time period when winter is winding down, the sun is getting higher in the sky, the air is still crisp and drinking dark lager bier outside around a fire seems just about right. Join us in this celebration!
