Schmeckfest is an annual festival in the southeastern South Dakota town of Freeman. The gathering uses food, art and a celebration of community to honor the history of Germans that emigrated from Russia. Held on the campus of the Freeman Academy, it’s been a fundraiser for the school every spring since 1959. The ethnic German meal, served family-style, and the community musical take place two weekends in March/April. The 2019 dates of the 61st Annual Schmeckfest are March 29-30 and April 5-6.
