Summer can be an extremely hectic time of the year and we have a way for you to take a breath and relax as we present the 2015 Concerts at Rotary Park summer music series.  With a free concert every Thursday night, except the week of the Jefferson County Fair, beginning at 7:00pm June through August.  These concerts will be held in the beautiful Rotary Waterfront Park Pavilion located alongside the Rock River in downtown Jefferson.  In case of rain the concert will be held across the Rock River at the Jefferson Area Business Center.  Be sure to follow us us on Facebook and/or Twitter for weekly concert updates, additional events, and concert location updates due to inclement weather.

    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
