I have many fond memories of Freudenfests past. For at least the last 10 year I have been actively involved in the planning committee and day-of operations, doing everything from decorating the town in red and yellow to running the kitchens to pouring beer. It’s an incredible experience and I encourage everyone to come out and participate in as many of the activities as you can. I will be around all weekend, so make sure you stop me and say hello. I’m very proud of all the work that the people of Oldenburg put into Freudenfest and look forward to greeting the visitors who come from near and far to experience this fantastic event.
