SPECIAL GUESTS: The Value Village People
Traditionally held in spring throughout Europe, a Kermesse is a small, neighbhourhood festival usually held in or around the village church grounds. A Dutch-language term that derives from the word 'kerk' (church) and 'mis' (mass), the term Kermesse was also used in English and French.
European immigrants brought this traditional, spring festival to North America, including the mainly-Germanic residents of Waterloo Region. Featuring games, music and food, a Kermesse is a perfect way for a neighbourhood to celebrate spring.
