Say that three times real fast! What is it? It's the 26th year of clubs from the Midwest getting together to celebrate camaraderie and tradition together. Each year the groups meet in a different city in the Midwest, hosted by a different club, to have a wonderful weekend together. Up to 300 people from about 20 clubs! The Fest has everything -- time to socialize, workshops about all things Bavarian, dancing, great music, dance exhibitions and competition for the youth, more socializing. The children who were there at the early Feste are still attending -- many with their own children. The friendships made over the years are strong; the sense of community keeps growing.
Early next year our club will publish more info about the event, which will be held in one location: the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Anyone within Gauverband Nordamerika is invited to attend. If you're not a member of a club, contact Edelweiss Detroit to find out how to participate.
