Fastnacht Day

February 13, 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM

What is a Fastnacht? It is an English name (which can be spelled many ways) for a fried doughnut served traditionally the day before Lent starts. Fastnachts were made as a way to empty the pantry of lard, sugar, fat, and butter, which were traditionally fasted from during Lent.


On February 13th 2018, stop in at Merrymead to pick-up your Doughnuts!  Or better yet, special order yours today to guarentee yourself the amount and variety you would like!   We offer the doughnuts in Vanilla Iced, Chocolate Ice, Powdered, Cinnamon Sugared, or Plain (which trandition has it, you can slice a plain doughnut and would enjoy with molasses!)  Also Available for SPECIAL ORDER ONLY- Cider Donuts!
