German American Festival


  • German Central Organization 7863 York Road Parma, OH, 44130 United States (map)

Schedule:

Below you will find the SKIT and DANCING schedule only. While there may be some changes in the next week, we wanted all to have their eyes on it. We had this out at practice but hopefully it will be good to see here. If you have any schedule conflicts for skits you are assigned to or the dance times, we need to know ASAP! Likewise, any schedule changes also need to be made clear to Heidi Rock as well (hmrock1@gmail.com). 

You'll see that Fliegerlieds are not filled in. We did this on purpose to allow Heidi to make her schedule and use people were needed. We will add in Fliegerlieds next week.

What to wear:

When in skits, if they do not have a costume, you may wear your own personal Lederhosen/Dirndl outfit. We ask that Dirndl be at least knee length and that stockings/tights and bloomers be worn at all times on stage. Hair must be up, but can be more fun and non-traditional for skits.

When dancing, which is only on Sunday, we will be wearing the Sommer Dirndl, and belt with blue tie. Children will be in the blue Dirndl w/ blue apron and blue ties. 

VOLUNTEERS:

ARRIVAL

Please plan on arriving at the festival at least 30 minutes before your volunteer shift begins, check in at the left ticket booth and then check in with Heidi Rock. It is requested that you check twice - the first is with the festival and the second is with STV Bavaria.

All German American Festival volunteers and performers, regardless of German organization affiliation, are required to sign in at the large (north, left) ticket booth when they arrive. This is a request from the German Central.At that time,  you will be asked for a valid state ID (driver’s license) and will be given the appropriate wristband (based on legal drinking age). All festival attendees, volunteers, and performers are being asked to provide identification at the ticket booth.

Therefore, all STV Bavaria volunteers and performers are being asked to report to the large ticket booth upon arrival EACH day. This is your “check in” to the festival.

*Please note that checking in to the festival is not the same as checking in to your volunteer shift with STV Bavaria. Therefore, you are also being asked to check in with Heidi Rock upon arrival at Das Glockenspiel.
