The First Annual Metzger Maifest is set for April 30:

We’ll be pouring an assortment of German Beers (including Maibock!), selling fun German inspired snacks out of our side window (think schnitzel sammies and everything pretzels), Ruby Salts Oyster Company will be shucking their delicious bivalves, and vendors like Drift / Riot, Maven Made and BEAR CERAMICS will be slinging their gorgeous handmade wares all while jamming to some rare funk and soul tunes on Cedar Street.

Entry to this event is free and kid friendly! This event is Rain or Shine.
