Come eat, drink, and dance at Deutsche Tage!
Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9
Traditional and modern Germany will be represented at this year’s Deutsche Tage. Dance to the Joey Johnson Band, a local trio that can polka with the best. A full schedule of entertainers include Ron Machel on accordion, the lovely Swiss Alp Horns, and concertina virtuoso Josh Eidsor.
Enjoy delicious food from the Black Forest Inn, including bratwurst, sauerkraut, and German potato salad. Be sure to save room for Paulaner beers, German and Austrian wines, Jägermeister, and Apfelschorle.
New this year, an Environmental Pavilion, where festival-goers can learn about alternative energy, energy efficiency, and passive house design; kids can make flower seed bombs; and last but not least, GOATS! Goat Dispatch, a company that rents out these eco-friendly animals, will talk about the ways goats can benefit the environment, and some of their star performers will be on-site.
Learn about the German Dual Education system and apprenticeship options locally at the Modern Apprenticeship Pavilion, part of a larger GAI initiative highlighting German-style apprenticeships.
The Fahrradtour (bicycle ride) 27k returns this year, leaving GAI Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Online registration coming soon!
