German American Weekend


Get your Lederhosen and Dirndls on, we are once again celebrating our beloved German American Weekend on December 2nd and 3rd! Come and see what the German American Clubs of the area have in stock for you: Schuhplattler dances, German choir songs and much more! We will kick off the weekend with our third annual Bratwurst Eating Contest on December 1st.

Make sure to stop by for a delicious German Bratwurst with house made Sauerkraut, a Schnitzel with Potato Salad, a Leberkäse (German meatloaf), Pretzels and wash it down with either a refreshing Hofbrau Beer from Munich or a hot Gluhwine!
