About the Family Fest

What is the New Glarus Family Fest?

New Glarus Family Fest was started 11 years ago, in 2007, as a free festival to give back to the community. We want anyone and everyone to come and enjoy music, friendship, and fun together. Be sure to check out the family day page for more details.


A big thank you needs to go out to the go out to the Grace Community Fellowship Church in New Glarus for their most recent, veery successful Family Fest this past Sunday. What a pleasurable event your congregation has pulled together once again. The car show was great as was the band, The Corvettes. They brought back a lot of memories. After attending the Family Fest again this year, it is very evident that your church fully understand the true concept of community, a word that is so easily tossed about by so many without ever understanding the real meaning of ‘community.'”

New Glarus Family Fest was wonderful! OMG  – And it was all FREE! A HUGE blossom for Grace Church of New Glarus for putting on New Glarus Family Fest. It was a wonderful FAMILY event. There were child activities, youth activities, entertainment, a tent for shade, fellowship and rest for us old folks, a car show, food, music, and much more. All FREE! Now, that’s what I call ministry. I, and hopefully many others, will support their efforts.”

Dear Family Festival, thank you so much for this 4th year of allowing us to be a part of your Fest. People let us know each year how much they appreciate what you do & and have done for the community. The Link Family was absolutely fantastic … What a  blessed ministry they have. It was a real pleasure to share the stage with them. Thank you again and may God, through the Lord Jesus Christ, bless your ministry and each one involved with this festival.”

First time to your festival. Enjoyed it very much. Brought our classic car. Wonderful Day!”

On arrival at the Family Festival, we were both impressed as to the setup of the park facilities and also the volume of families enjoying the festivities. We met a lot of people and enjoyed mingling throughout the day. We would like to thank everyone for the friendship that was extended to us on that occasion.”

Dear Family Fest, thank you so much for your generosity and thoughtfulness in inviting your neighbors (and we are all neighbors) to share good times at last weekend’s Festival. My daughter and I attended with several friends and had a marvelous time. You all did a great job pulling together to make it happen.”

Dear Family Fest, a note of thanks from the staff and residents of the New Glarus Home. Our afternoon was very enjoyable! Thanks again.”
