Bockfest 2018 at Fitger’s

March 15-17

We know you’re excited for Bockfest 2018 here at Fitger’s!

Join us in our annual celebration as we try to capture the bocks (goat) so we can usher in an early spring.  The bocks are stubborn just like this long winter, so you’ll want to try extra hard to capture them – because we want spring to come soon.
