We celebrate Frühlingsfest, Sommernachtsfest, Oktoberfest and Weihnachtsfest every year, as well as our annual Christmas Market. Our annual Christmas Market is where you can purchase all of your Christmas shopping and authentic German homemade cookies. We are also excited to offer Laternenfest to our annual calendar of celebrations. Please check the upcoming events on the right often for announcement regarding these events! Posters will become available and placed under the News tab once the event draws nearer.
Seeing as our Mutter-Kind Gruppe opened in Fall 2021, we are looking forward to having more family friendly events in the coming years. We invite all families and individuals who wish to join in our festivities to do so, regardless if you know how to speak German or not.
We truly enjoyed having our Easter celebration (Easter Scavenger Hunt, crafts, games, and snacks) this year and are hoping to do another one next year!
