March 19 @ 4:00 pm - March 20 @ 7:00 pm
Schmeckfest means “festival of tasting” in German. In the beginning, it was all about the food (see History). But it has become much more than that. Schmeckfest is a celebration of the rich heritage of the Freeman community.
All activities take place on the Freeman Academy campus and include many experiences including great food to purchase, craft demonstrations, fine arts performances, buffet-style meal, historical presentations, and food preparation demonstrations. Then, each evening is culminated in a musical production put on by talented community members.
All events, except for the meal, musical production and activities at the museum are free and open to the public.
Schmeckfest takes place over two consecutive weekends in early spring. The 2021 celebration is scheduled for March 19-20 and March 26-27.
