You'd be hard pressed to find a smaller town with a bigger party. The 2013 Haubstadt Sommerfest will be this weekend, June 20, 21 and 22. The festival features a parade, 5k race, rides, games, local food booths and what organizers call "Southern Indiana’s Finest Bierstube".
This year’s festival theme is “Community Spirit.”
In addition to supporting annual gifts for scholarships, local infrastructure improvements and youth sports, proceeds from this year’s festival go towards the Haubstadt Library.
A new library is currently under construction at the corner of Gibson and Main Streets in downtown Haubstadt. The Haubstadt Sommerfest, INC. donated $50,000 to purchase property for the library in 2010, and this year, they hope to raise money for technology, furnishings and landscaping for the building once it is completed.
