Sunset Hills Historical Society – German Fest

The Sunset Hills Historical Society’s September 2018 event will be the German Fest, a celebration of the area’s German founding fathers, on Sunday, September 23, 2018. The music of the Joe Polach & the St. Louis Express Band will provide entertainment from 5:00 til 7:00 p.m. on the lawn in front of the on the lawn in front of the Sunset Hills Community Center, at 3915 S Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63127. You will see folks sitting in lawn chairs scattered around the lawn (unless it’s a hot evening; then they’ll be sitting in the shade 😊) and see and smell the barbecue smoke rising from the grill.

Food will be for sale, and furnished by members of Heartland Industries. Barbecued hamburgers, hotdogs, bratwurst and chips will be for sale at a nominal fee, with a portion of the proceeds going to this local nonprofit sheltered workshop.

And what German Fest would be complete without dessert? The Tikiz Shaved Ice and Ice Cream truck will be on site. They claim to bring ‘Sweets to the Streets’ with ‘The Coolest Truck on Earth’ and they accept credit cards and offer gluten-free items.

The St. Louis Express band specializes in ethnic music, especially polkas and waltzes, but also plays a variety of American standard songs, country, and rock n roll. So bring your dancing shoes, as well as your own lawn chair to rest up between dances.

Beer and wine will also be for sale, with a portion of these proceeds going to the Sunset Hills Historical Society.
