47th Annual Deutschesfest in Odessa
Experience an authentic German tradition with the $49er Club that has attractions for all ages—authentic German food, city-block big biergarten, live music, a parade, kids zone, street vendors and helicopter rides—just to name a few. Odessa’s Deutschesfest is hosted by the descendants of the German Russians who settled west of Spokane at the beginning of the 20th Century. These industrious immigrants transformed the desolate Odessa area into one of the world’s richest grain-growing areas. They have an appreciation for worldly delights – good food and drink, music and dancing. This has been handed down through the generations to give Odessa a very special ambiance, which abounds at Deutschesfest. In German it’s called gemutlichkelt – the spirit of comradeship and good times.
Cost: $49 members/$54 non-members. Includes transportation, snacks and sausages. Van leaves at 10 a.m. and returns around 4 p.m.
