Leavenworth celebrates the spring season every year with Maifest. When the flowers are blooming, the sun it out and the Bavarian Village is alive with excitement, you can bet that Maifest has begun! As a German tradition that dates back to the 10th century, Maifest was a time when villagers would get together to celebrate the arrival of spring after a long winter. They would play music, plant flowers, play games, and raise a 'maipole' in the local square.
AUTUMN LEAF FESTIVAL
As Leavenworth's longest running event, the Autumn Leaf Festival is all about the changing colors of leaves once the fall season rolls around. Originating in 1964 when Leavenworth took on the Bavarian theme, this festival is Leavenworth's original festival. Visitors can enjoy music, parades, food and more during this event held in late September.
