Join Dick Brothers Brewery in partnership with Quincy Brewing Company for our first ever MayFest at 929 York St. in the heart of Quincy, IL.

The event continues a tradition of celebrating Quincy’s German Heritage and pays homage to the Brewery’s History. MayFest is a family-friendly sister event to Oktoberfest held in the fall with a focus on craft breweries and partnering with local organizations to bring a fun family activities throughout the day.

Mayfest (or Maifest in Germany) is the traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring.
