We might not be able to have our events in person, but we will have Schlachtfest To Go!
Oktoberfest Update, watch video above
The Jugendgruppe performed a virtual Memorial Day Service at Lake Villa since we were unable to meet this year. Aric Werstein and Kelsey McMahan filmed, directed and edited it for your enjoyment. Thank you to Angela Balcerak for the idea Nick Balcerak and Erik Lisauskas for the execution along with the Jugendgruppe.
Special thanks to Erika Scheffrahn for the wreaths provided.
Feel free to join us at any of our upcoming events!
We are German-Americans located in Illinois who enjoy celebrating the German culture. We are very proud of our heritage, music, folk dances and good German food. In the past we have assisted and helped many who were not so fortunate and suffered terribly. We are grateful people and thankful to be living in this blessed country. Come join us in fellowship for the common good and for the support of our communities. Visit us at any of our festivities found on this website and enjoy real German "Gemuetlichkeit".
