The goal of Top Events USA is to showcase the best of events.  Guttenberg Germanfest committee members are thrilled to learn of this recognition!  “We’re a small committee who all volunteer endless hours almost year-round coordinating the details of this festival.  It’s nice to have our efforts recognized.  We volunteer our time because we believe this event highlights all our historic/scenic town has to offer and brings a boost to the local businesses when the town is filled with activity,” say volunteers.  “None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the support of our sponsors and event workers, so we are glad to do it and have been pleased with the growth and success the addition of many new elements added over the past 3 years.”   Germanfest has sustained 23 years and it will keep getting better every year!”
