Locals will be able to sample a wide variety of craft beer while shopping dozens of artisan booths at Main Street Square’s 8th Annual Fruhlingsfest & Spring Market Saturday, May 22 from 1 – 5 p.m. Fruhlingsfest, German for spring festival, is the perfect way to welcome in the warmer season, according to Maja Marsh, marketing director for Main Street Square. 

The family-friendly event will feature many of the area’s finest beer, food, homemade artwork and specialty goods. Live music will be provided by Camp Comfort, a Black Hills blues-rock band. 

The annual festival is public after 2020’s virtual event. Last spring, locals shopped virtually picking up their local goodies at the square. “We had to pivot, be creative and willing to try new things and that worked,” Maja said. While the virtual event was a success, she said they are looking forward to having people gather in the square again. “We are excited to see our vendors and have them interact with the community.” 

Organizers are changing the beer tasting this year for safety reasons. Instead of unlimited tastings, locals can purchase a flight for $20 which will include three options of four specialty beers on a souvenir branded wooden board. Participants can add a bouquet from Victoria’s Garden to the flight for $35 or just purchase the bouquet for $20. 

The event is free and open to all ages. IDs are required to consume alcohol.
