Delaware Saengerbund Oktoberfest
Food: German specialties include grilled Bratwurst (pork sausage), Weisswuurst (veal sausage), Frankfurters, BBQ chicken, potato pancakes, pretzels and "Rollmops", a marinated herring served with rye bread. Potato salad and sauerkraut are made daily in the Delaware Saengerbund kitchen. A variety of Torten and traditional plum cake are the tempting sweet fare.
Continuous Entertainment: The "Enzian Volkstanzgruppe", the Bavarian dance group of the Delaware Saengerbund, will entertain at intervals during the festival. They perform in the colorful "Tracht" - the traditional costume patterned after the distinctive style of Miesbach in Bavaria. The men wear "Lederhosen" - buck skin leather pants - the women a "Dirndl" - a dress consisting of several parts: skirt, blouse, vest, apron, shawl, completed with a special hat.
When the EVTG is not dancing, German music will be provided on Friday & Saturday night and Sunday afternoon by "Almwind". "Heidi and Heimat Echo" will play for your enjoyment Saturday afternoon. The Saengerbund's Haus Band, the Enzian Musikanten, will open the festival each day with their performance.
Imported Gifts and Souvenirs: Oktoberfest souvenirs including mugs, glassware, t-shirts, hats and accessories are available in a great variety.
