Deutsche Tage 2020—a new kind of celebration
St. Paul’s longest-running ethnic festival continues from the comfort of your own home. Join us online for activities and entertainment.

The pre-order period for the Haus Party Kits is over.
Please pick up your pre-ordered Haus Party Kits curbside on Saturday, June 13 between 11 AM and 2 PM.

Have your own Deutsche Tage Haus Party! 
For this year’s Deutsche Tage, we are preparing a party starter kit with the essentials for your party at home! For only $20, the Haus Party Kit will include two Paulaner beers, a small bottle of Jägermeister, an Aki pretzel, a sweet treat, plus a party surprise. Kits are available for pick-up on Saturday, June 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Be a VIP (Very Invested Patron) this year
Those who would like to support the festival and the GAI’s cultural programs with a sponsorship can purchase a VIP Haus Party Kit for $100 (individual) or $150 (couple). In addition to the items above, our VIPs will receive a 6-pack of Paulaner beer, a bottle of wine, a Black Forest cherry cream cheese bar, and more! Thank you for helping us keep the spirit of Deutsche Tage going strong during these unprecedented times! 

Deutsche Tage Masks: One-of-a-Kind!
While we are all looking forward to the day when we don’t need to wear face masks, we are grateful to our super supporters who have put in hours of sewing to make Deutsche Tage Haus Party Kit face masks, now sold out. Volunteers from our board and the Damenklub have brought their decades of sewing expertise to this huge project—making over 300 masks!

Our face masks are made from vintage shirts, Dirndl, aprons, and event banners that have been donated to the GAI over the past few decades. This makes them not only sustainably made, but also durable and soft. (And don’t worry, we have many Dirndl left in our supply at the GAI, as we regularly receive donations from friends and members).  

In addition to our Haus materials, our mask-makers have continued in the GAI’s tradition of resourcefulness and creatively drawn from their own collections of fabric, thread, and elastic. They expertly followed a pattern recommended by North Memorial Hospital, which are contoured to the face and have a pocket to include a coffee filter for increasing the efficacy of the mask. Thank you to our mask-making volunteers for helping make Deutsche Tage 2020 safe and fun for everyone!
