Through our four annual festivals, we celebrate the cultures of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. They feature dancing to live bands (alpine and international folk music), German food, and performances by our very own Schuhplattler dancers in traditional attire. German beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks are served. The kitchen serves traditional Spätzle, Bratwurst, Kartoffelsalat (potato salad), Sauerkraut, Pork Roast (Schweinebraten), and German desserts, while Bretzeln (pretzels) and Würstchen (sausages) are available as Vesperle (snacks).
Lederhosen, Dirndl, Tirolerhut and any other Trachtenkleid (traditional attire) encouraged!
