Celebrating Sister City Schifferstadt

Maifest 2019 Flyer

Proclaiming May 4 as Schifferstadt Day:
On May 4, at Grace United Church of Christ in Frederick, the Sister Cities Association will celebrate Maifest and the bond that has existed between Schifferstadt Germany and Frederick since 1758.

Since 1995, our city has annually proclaimed Schifferstadt Day; and Mayor Michael O’Connor proclaimed May 4, Schifferstadt Day in The City of Frederick, and invites people to acquaint themselves with our sister city and the cultural influences that distinguish our home.

In 1758, the Brunner family of Schifferstadt settled and established a homestead in what was then called Fredericktown. In the years that followed, many other immigrants from Germany came and settled and made history in what is now the City of Frederick. The relationship between the two cities since then has been instrumental in the development of the two cultures.
