German-American Festival 2013

Ready for polka music, Ledorhosen, Spatlze, Sauerkaraut, and some bratwurst?

Traditionally there are a number of picnic tables in the back of the German Central fairgrounds-next to their outdoor beer stands. Ill be there, hopefully with a beer and wearing a black Polo. If you cant find me my cell is[masked]-3118. Its always best to text as there should be a couple of musical groups playing and hearing is somewhat difficult.

After a couple Saturday Afternoon Meetups I though I'd try a Friday Night one (Truth is this festival is 5-Midnight Friday and 4-Midnight Saturday and I'm booked on Saturday).

The German American Societies of Cleveland own a fairly large fairground are not far from the Southwest Campus of Tri-C.  Minimal charge to get in, $5, but there are usually 2-3 acts going on. Traditional German Marches, classical music, and of course dancers.

Plenty of big heavy German Food and Beer as well.

    I posted direction a full day before the event because experience tells me if I do it days in advance people forget or miss them-it works considerably better if I post them 24 hours in advance. Im sorry that didnt work for you but I cant cater when people want directions posted for every person who RSVPs. I hope you come anyway.

    I'm new. Tradition means nothing except being left out of what's going on. Sorry you don't consider new folks and expect them to know what's happening.

    I'm always interested in different cultures and meeting new people. Every person is another world, another and different point of view to life for me. Looking forward to be there !

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
