History of Frühlingsfest:
Frühlingsfest is translated as ‘Spring Festival’ and is known as ‘Oktoberfest’s little sister' in Germany. It celebrates the end of a cold winter and beginning of spring, and it typically occurs mid-April to the beginning of May. Stuttgart and Munich have some of the largest Frühlingsfests in Germany, and now the Heurich House is bringing the age-old traditional to Washington, DC!
