Oktoberfest in Indianapolis
The Family Oktoberfest downtown in the
Butler students a nice chance to get out and help in the
community. Students help with games and face-painting for the
kids. It is a real "German-speaking" environment as many of the
people who come for the fun and games are from Indy's large German
community, and therefore a really good opportunity to meet people
and speak German!
The German-American Klub (GAK) of Indianapolis (south side in
Greenwood) hosts its annual Oktoberfest early in September every
year. Students often come to take in the fun, music and
dancing. Again, there are more Germans in Indy than you can
imagine, and many congregate at the GAK! The GAK also has a fine
German restaurant called the "Edelweis Restaurant" and hosts other
events such as adult and children's dancing groups, card playing
tournaments, music evenings and special dinners.
