Germanfest, Missoula Montana

Back to all events


The relationships between the US state of Montana and Germany run deep. In fact, Missoula enjoys a sister city relationship with the German city of Neckargemund. The Germanfest event is held every year at Missoula to remember this relationship. Even those residents who do not have any relationship with the European country attend this event to enjoy themselves.
