Downtowners Announce German Days- Volkswagen Partnership

The Downtown Business Association of Bismarck (Downtowners) announced Volkswagen of Bismarck has come on board as their German Days title partner for the second year event.  The Downtowners German Days inaugural event held last year, showcases German and Germans from Russia heritage in the heart of Downtown Bismarck at the Depot.  German food, music, entertainment, and beer are featured during the two and a half day event coming up July 14-16, 2016.

Volkswagen of Bismarck, a division of Bismarck Motor Company and founding sponsor, will be leading the title partnership role for the expanded 2nd Annual Downtowners German Days event.  One of the world’s most recognizable German brands and products, Volkswagen of Bismarck will be on hand showcasing vehicles, sponsoring activities throughout the event, and bringing German Volkswagen flare to fun to the Depot grounds during German Days.

German Days was started in 2015 by the Downtowners Association to be an anchor summer activity in the future area of the Depot gathering space, a private development in Downtown Bismarck which will bring a central public space back to the Bismarck community.  After a successful inaugural event, the 2nd Annual Downtowners German Days will be extended to kickoff Thursday evening with a traditional ceremonial keg-tapping with the Mayor.

Volkswagen of Bismarck’s German Days partnership and event proceeds will go to the Downtowners Association 501c6 non-profit and Downtown Bismarck Community Foundation 501c3 in support of the future Depot public gathering space.
