The Roselle Sister Cities German Committee is holding its Inaugural Bockfest on April 23rd.

Roselle was founded primarily by Germans and German Americans and what better way to celebrate our Centennial than with a festival!

This event includes a community parade, the blessing of a keg of beer, and festivities at Pollyanna Brewing Company.

The Bockfest parade kicks off at noon at Kemmerling Park and ends at Pollyanna where the celebration will continue through 11:00 p.m. with beer, German food, a Wurst King and Queen Coronation, Goat Bingo, live music, Goat Yoga, and more.
