    German Heritage   

We encourage you to visit our community and enjoy our proud German Heritage. In September of each year, citizens of the City of Jefferson participate in "Gemuetlichkeit Days" to celebrate our German Heritage. Young and old dress in traditional German costume and participate in contests  throughout the festival weekend.  Just a few things you can enjoy are music and dancing, indulging in authentic German cuisine, and a huge parade on Sunday.  

The festival is a family event with a German theme, but don't worry...you don't have to be German to enjoy it!

The festival takes place the 2nd weekend after

Labor Day.


For more information on Gemuetlichkeit Days visit:  www.gdays.org
