Celebrate German heritage

The Sacred Heart – St. Joseph parish is hosting a great Topeka tradition- Germanfest June 1-2 to support the Holy Family Catholic School. German food, music and fun all weekend.

Here’s a full weekend schedule from the Germanfest Facebook page:

Germanfest is a celebration of German heritage at Sacred Heart-St. Joseph Parish in Topeka, KS. Come join us for authentic German food and music, contests, auctions, drawings, games, inflatables, and much more! Germanfest is open to the entire community (not just those stubborn Germans!).
