Outhouse Races

Saturday, August 13th

Following the Parade

The ever popular racing of the outhouses returns this year!

According to a source cited by the Black Forest Community Club, the races date back to 1976 when those that lived in Black Forest wanted to host a watermelon feed in a nearby empty lot. “The problem with the site was with all the beer and watermelon that would be consumed, there would be a dire need for toilets.”

This was when someone suggested that they move the two outhouses, which had served the community center for years, to the location of the celebration. And the Black Forest Outhouse Races were born!

Family Beer Garden

Saturday, August 13th

12:00pm - 3:00pm

By popular demand, we are hosting a Family Beer Garden during the Festival again this year. Families can come into the Beer Garden for drinks, sodas, water, snacks, games, and music. 

This is a different event from the Biergarten Fundraiser, taking place on Friday, August 12th.
