Dear Friends of Stiftungsfest,
The Stiftungsfest Committee and NYA Firefighters want to thank everyone for another great celebration. Beautiful weather and great entertainment brought people from all around, even some from other states to our small town celebration. The new Thursday Evening “Family Night” was an overwhelming success! Thanks to the four local churches that put this on. Numerous games for our youth, a dunk tank, and a movie in the ball field are only a few of the many activities of the fun filled evening. We are excited to announce that this event will be back in years to come!

The Big Musik Tent entertainment was great and very well attended. Thanks to all the entertainers that come from a distance to perform. Burger and beer sales were ahead of last year’s sales. We sold out on just about everything we had for food! A huge Saturday crowd was the reason for the successful numbers.

Special thanks to the Plato Fire Department for helping with the annual water fights. The Fun Run, Sheephead tournament, Car Show, church service, Craft Fair, Coronation, Pedal Pull, carnival, kick ball, and our two new events – Bean Bag and Youth 3-on3 Basketball Tourney - all had great participation! And how great was Bingo inside the Pavilion?! The men and women softball tournaments went well. Congrats to our two new Stiftungsfest Ambassadors Hannah Stieve and Lydia Trocke, plus the new Lil’ Miss Stiftungsfest ambassadors Willow Wilkens and Riley Hoen. They will be promoting our town and celebration for the coming year.

Thanks to the nearly 300 volunteers that work a shift in the stands, without you, it all would not be possible! Thanks to the City of NYA for all the help they give. A very special THANK YOU to our sponsors. Stiftungsfest would not be possible without the donations from these folks. Please support our local businesses like they support you. Stiftungsfest is always the weekend before Labor Day weekend. Next year’s dates are Aug. 27, 28, 29 and 30th, 2020.

Thanks to all who attended this year’s celebration, hope to see you again next year!
