Maifest at Nature Friends in Oakland

















Unlike years past, this year tickets will be sent by Nature Friends to those who RSVP on their website, so if you want to attend, click on this link and add your name to the guest list.

Please read all the instructions that are provided on the announcement!!!

This is the most popular of several large festivals put on yearly by the wonderful organizers of Oakland's private Nature Friends Tourist Club on their beautiful grounds overlooking much of the Bay. Stammtisch has been a regular at these celebrations which draw hundreds of people together, present traditional dances on a large outdoor dance floor, and German food and drinks that will have you wondering why you can't go there every weekend!

The Nature Friends Schuhplattler dance group will as always be on hand to perform traditional dances, this time to the music of the Gruber Family Band.


I will not be at this celebration because I'm moving to Eureka, so if there is anyone in Stammtisch who would like to be on hand to host the event, please send me an email and I'll add you as host. Hosting is very simple, not at all a daunting undertaking, and it gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of Stammtisch members.

$10.00 for adults. Children under 14 get in free.

If any details change, I'll send updates to those who have RSVPd, in addition to changing them on this announcement.

Viel Vergnuegen!
