CONCORDIA FALL FESTIVAL
The festival, which has a different theme each year, draws thousands of spectators annually. Highlights of the week include the queen contest, three parades and a variety of exhibits, bake sales and contests for children and adults. Midland Empire Shows provides entertaining rides such as a carousel, Ferris wheel and giant slide. Concordia’s heritage is put on display at the fair, when visitors can eat German-style food in the outdoor Heidelberg Gardens. Visitors also dance to live bands and browse the tables at a country store selling hand-crafted items.
In honor of our 150th year of business right here in Concordia, we hosted CFM Night at Heidelberg Gardens! FREE entry for the first 150 people to come into Heidelberg Garden. With that free entry, each person was given a ticket for a free hamburger basket in a CFM stainless steel mug, for them to keep. CFM purchased the live entertainment for the evening as well. At Saturday's Ping Pong Ball Drop, CFM supplied 150 gold ping pong balls for the drop and each one represents a FREE unlimited rides wristband to the carnival.
