Kettering Sister Cities hosts two signature events each year.

Spass Nacht – June 21, 2023

The Kettering Sister Cities Association hosts “Spass Nacht – An Austrian Festival” normally on the third Wednesday in June at Lincoln Park Civic Commons.

In honor of Kettering’s sister city, Steyr, Austria, we celebrate with a Spass Nacht (translation: Fun Night). Put on your lederhosen and join us at this fun annual festival. We’ll bring the authentic food, beverages, polka music and live entertainment–you bring your family and friends to this celebration of all things Austrian. The festivities will take place throughout Lincoln Park.  This FREE EVENT is open to the public and features live polka music. This Spass Nacht will mark our 52nd anniversary with Steyr as our sister city.

Please note: glass steins and pets are not permitted in the park during this festival.  Spass Nacht steins are permitted. For more information about the Spass Nacht Austrian Festival, please visit the Fraze Pavilion website.
