Organisers are making the final preparations for the inaugural Wimmera German Fest, which will raise money for the Blue Ribbon Foundation Horsham branch.
The branch will donate proceeds toWimmera Base Hospital’s emergency department.
Festival steering committee chairman Peter Daffy said about two years of planning and organisation had gone into the event.
“The Wimmera is rich with German history, and we wanted something that would celebrate that, and also give people a chance to experience the vibrant German culture,” he said.
“We really hope people will embrace something different.
“The weather is looking perfect, so hopefully that encourages people to get out and enjoy what we have to offer.”
The event will feature a range of German beers and food, including bee sting cakes –bienenstich –potato pancakes –kartoffelpuffer –and bratwurst.
Mr Daffy said there would also be performances from German bands, complemented by the region’s own Wimmera German Band.
“We also have a handful of schools involved in poetry readingsand songs, which is fantastic,” he said.
“There are also a couple of competitions during the day that people can get involved in.”
