This popular self-guided tour of historic barns brings awareness to the public of our strong agricultural heritage and how barns were constructed to last. Barn docents will greet ticket holders at each barn location to share information and answer questions.  During this time, artists and crafters will be creating at the barns. Antique farm equipment and tools will be on display. See a working dairy farm, a sheep farm, Red Angus beef cattle, donkeys and other farm critters.

Oktoberfest at Schifferstadt for 2021 has been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you in 2022.

The FCLF Board of Directors has been investigating the feasibility of holding our beloved Oktoberfest. Sadly, by the time it became obvious that an event such as Oktoberfest would be safe to hold we were not left with enough time to secure adequate staffing, resources, or contracts to make our annual event viable in 2021. Plans for Oktoberfest 2022 are already under way. We are looking forward to celebrating with you then.

FCLF is an all-volunteer organization. If you are able to volunteer in planning for next year's event, please contact us at
