Ferdinand Heimatfest

About Ferdinand Heimatfest

In the spirit of the Town's German heritage, the annual Ferdinand Heimatfest brings residents and visitors alike to the 18th Street Park every summer to celebrate with a wide variety of food, entertainment, and games. This year, the world-renowned Kentucky Headhunters will rock this summer's Ferdinand Heimatfest. The Kentucky Headhunters are coming to Ferdinand courtesy of Ferdinand Farmers Mutual Insurance as part of that company's 150th anniversary celebration. The concert will be a free event thanks to Ferdinand Farmers Mutual. The Ferdinand Heimatfest is scheduled for June 20th and 21st at the town's 18th Street Park with the usual Ferdinand hometown foods, events, contests, and hospitality. The Kentucky Headhunters are known for their unique blend of country and southern rock with such hits as "Dumas Walker," "Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine," and "Oh Lonesome Me." Also at the Heimatfest, various contests allow participants the chance to demonstrate their talent and present it to a wide audience. A variety of children's activities and contests occur throughout the weekend and adults find their fun while watching the live entertainment in the German beer garden each evening.
