BEST OF TOLEDO 2021 – Community

BEST FESTIVAL
WINNER: German American Festival
germanamericanfestival.net
Our voters love the German American Festival. How much? It won on the 2020 ballot for Best Festival, and it wasn’t even held that year! So for 2021, with Toledo’s oldest and largest ethnic festival once again back in full swing— featuring music, folk dancing, activities, contests, authentic German food and plenty of delicious beer— there was no way the GAF would be denied. Prost!
