Our Springfest event celebrates nature coming alive this time of year, and it’s no coincidence that we scheduled it the day before the day we all celebrate the women who gave us life– our moms! Springfest is the perfect opportunity to treat your mother to a fun day with the family, and here are 5 things your mom will love about our event:
Family Entertainment and Fun
Our mainstage in Magnolia Square will be full of live music all day long, starting with the King Guys Brass Band, and ending with local Sanford favorite Cowboy Keith. Your family will love singing, dancing, and toasting right along to the German beer hall music and twists on Americana, and this is the perfect opportunity to teach the kids the words to a few classic songs, such as “The Happy Wanderer” and “The Pizza Hut Song”. And in our opinion, no one is ever too old or too young to participate in the Chicken Dance or sing a few choruses of Ein Prosit!
The Amazing Fritzy
Moms everywhere will be delighted (but also probably a little nervous about safety the whole time) as the magnificent Fritzy of Fritzy Brothers One Man Circus rolls through the streets of Downtown Sanford on his famous unicycle. This unique entertainer dazzles audiences with his daring stunts, quick wit, and killer smile. He has even been known to hoist an audience member onto his shoulders and take a ride around…could your mom be his assistant this Springfest? Only time will tell!
While we are strong believers in quality at Hollerbach’s, we aren’t afraid of quantity either, and we always load our festival stalls with tons of delicious German food. Your mom will love having her pick of some of our most popular dishes, all served within a few steps of the mainstage entertainment. And if your Mutti is German, she will be thrilled to hear that we are serving white asparagus, or Spargel, fresh from a farm in Germany. That’s right, in addition to our famous brats, pretzels and Bier, we’ll be serving every German’s favorite vegetable, prepared with great respect to its delicate flavor and texture. Enjoy your Spargel with hollandaise, in a traditional cream soup presentation, or with Kassler smoked pork loin and potatoes – or pre-order a bundle from Magnolia Square Market to enjoy at home.
Shopping at the Farmer’s Market
Did you know that Downtown Sanford has a Farmer’s Market every Saturday in Magnolia Square? That’s right, Hollerbach’s is teaming up with the Sanford Farmer’s Market to showcase some fresh produce, homemade baked goods, and handmade goodies in Magnolia Square as part of our spring festival. Take mom for a stroll through the Square for some support-local shopping, and a great opportunity to pick up fresh items for a Mother’s Day feast!
Dirndls and Lederhosen
If you really want to spoil your mom, you can have her fitted at Hollerbach’s Art Haus for the perfect Springfest outfit! We’ve learned since we started selling Trachten (traditional German clothing) that almost every woman has a secret desire to wear her very own Dirndl, and we can make that happen! Either way, it’s lots of fun to shop around for colorful traditional folk costumes, snarky t-shirts, and special accessories, so come take a look around the Art Haus to see for yourself.
