It is from his diary, February 1929. From O. Schlemmer, “Mensch und Kunstfigur”. Original Quote: “Die früheren Feste in Weimar…bezeichnen die heiteren, festlichen Stationen auf dem sonst keineswegs leidlosen Weg dieses Instituts. Sage mir, wie du Feste feierst, und ich werde dir sagen, wer du bist, oder: Jede Gesellschaftsschicht hat das Fest, das sie verdient. 

"The previous festivals in Weimar … denote the cheerful, festive stations on the otherwise not free from suffering way this institute takes. Tell me how you celebrate feasts, and I will tell you who you are, or: Each social class has the feast that it deserves.

Translating feast with contemporary “party” is ok, I guess ;)

Hope this helps.
