10th Annual Wassail Tasting & Christmas Extravaganza
December 7, 2017
5pm-8pm
Fayette County Courthouse Square – 151 N Washington Street

Entering into its 10th year, Schmeckenfest is a true community event, which attracts visitors to the Square to sample over 25 different types of wassail (hot cider) made by various business owners and community leaders.  The wassail competition brings the allure of the coveted honor of being named Schmeckenmeister.  An honor which lasts until the next Schmeckenfest festival.

This small town Christmas festival also includes music, delicious treats sold by local nonprofit organizations; and let’s not forget a visit from Santa.

The festivities begin with a Christmas parade and lighting of the County Christmas tree on the Courthouse lawn.  There are also a number of children’s activities including a bounce house, Schmecken-ball pit, and of course Christmas cookie decorating.

For more information, please contact the City of La Grange Main Street & Visitors Bureau, 979-968-3017.
