Germania has a number of different events throughout the year, some for the public and some for our members although non-member guests are welcome at just about everything (unless specifically indicated).

We have three major events each year: Oktoberfest, Christkindlmarkt, and Maifest. Germania also hosts a Volksmarch two times a year. We have monthly Membership Meetings, which include dinner, bier, and lots of gemütlichkeit. And every month we have several other events for members, as well as local German community events that our members are encouraged to participate in representing the Germania Society.
