Alpenfest Postponed to 2021


The safety of community members, volunteers, guests to our community, and stability of the business community was top of mind when the Alpenfest Board of Directors made the very tough decision to postpone the 2020 festival due to COVID-19 to 2021.


In 56 years, this is the first time that the festival has not taken place in the Gaylord Community. “Alpenfest may not be happening this year, but we plan to take this time to improve the festival and come out of this crisis stronger than ever for the community that we support,” said Wendie Forman Alpenfest Board President.


The board would like to thank our community members, vendors, past attendees, sponsors, and partners for their support over the years. Without the support of all these players, Alpenfest would not be possible. COVID 19 is causing unprecedented effects that are felt by many individuals and businesses.

The Alpenfest® Board is looking forward to 2021 for the 57th Alpenfest®. The festival will take place July 13-17, 2021. This week we would like to thank our partners for making a donation to this year’s Alpenfest to help us cover costs that we incurred because we had to postpone the festival.
