Kettering Sister Cities hosts two signature events each year.

Spass Nacht – June 19, 2019

The Kettering Sister Cities Association hosts “Spass Nacht – An Austrian Festival” 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.

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

Pub Night- Wednesday, October 23, 2019

The Kettering Sister Cities Association hosts “Pub Night” each fall. This year, the Sister Cities Association will celebrate 41 years of  sister cities relationships with Kettering, England. This event will offer authentic food, door prizes, and great conversation with sister cities members from past and present.
