Every year as we start to look for venues, we generally have a region in mind. We pick states and then start researching. Over the last 10 years, we have looked at just about every obvious resort out there. We have a long list of criteria. Many places end up on the proverbial cutting room floor but may stay on our maybe someday virtual list. You've heard it said "it takes a village" and in fact, that is true for us. We were in negotiations with several hotels and continuing our search when we received an email from one of our KP families that had visited a place they thought could be a future KP venue. It was in one of our target states and this place had been on our radar but we had yet to have contact with them. So the email prompted us to call and after several calls and emails and a visit by Karen in September, we feel that this venue will be a unique and fun place for KP 2018.
Kazapalooza 2018 will be held in Frankenmuth, Michigan at the Bavarian Inn on June 22-24th.
The Bavarian inn is unique in that it is a family owned resort with a German heritage theme and the family is very involved in the day to day running of the Inn. Please understand that some things may feel and look different than a corporate resort including the reservation process. You truly feel a strong family focus through the whole experience from each room representing a family in the town to their 94 yr old family matriarch cooking in the kitchen when we were visiting. These are just some of the reasons we felt it was a good fit for Kazapalooza 2018! Oh, and the Pretzels and Strudel are fabulous!
