45th German-American Festival is August 27-29

Oak Shade Grove, Oregon: Headlining this years German-American Festival will be STV Bavaria a folk dance ensemble that has performed, competed and perpetuated the tradition of Bavarian culture throughout the U.S. and Germany since 1921. But thats only one of the many acts that will grace the stages of the event over the weekend.

Local Germanic and other ethnic music will be heard continuously throughout the weekend as a wide range of performers take to the Wein Garten and Hofbruhalle and Fest Zelt entertainment areas the latter featuring a large 56x40 wooden dance floor covered by a main tent spanning 100x265 without poles. Just like what youd find at the Oktoberfest in Munich!

In the words of Timothy Pecsenye, festival chair, Music is the heartbeat of the festival. And were particularly looking forward to showcasing some of the most talented musicians and singers in the genre, featuring our own local group, Holzhacker Buam, all weekend in the Fest Zelt tent, along with the first-time appearance of Alpen Echos from Cincinnati, Ohio, on Saturday, August 28.

Were also having Spass and The Martin Brothers Plus Band back again (both hailing from Detroit, Michigan). And, strolling the grounds as she did last year will be fest-favorite Peggy Mller a button box virtuoso from Germantown, Wisconsin.

On a special note, local German and Swiss choruses, the Teutonia Mnnerchor and the Toledo Swiss Singers, will provide the sonic backdrop for the 2010 German-American Festival German Worship Service. Scheduled for Sunday, August 29th at 10:30 a.m., this gathering will be highlighted by liturgy and hymns sung in German, accompanied by a Sermon in English. Individuals attending this free service will also receive free admission to the festival.

The Fest Zelt, Wein Garten and Hofbruhalle stages will be running entertainment concurrently with festival hours on Friday and Saturday, Pecsenye said. Polka Floyd an accordion-driven version of the innovative and legendary rock group Pink Floyd performs on Sunday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

General admission tickets are $7 per person. Visit: www.germanamericanfestival.net or www.gafsociety.org/fest.htm.
Festival hours: Friday, August 27, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.; Saturday, August 28, 2 p.m. to 1 a.m.; and Sunday, August 29, Noon to 11 p.m.

Editors Note: The Festival is operated by the G.A.F Society, which is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. It is sponsored by the seven German- and Swiss-American societies in Toledo, and is intended to promote and enhance the German and Swiss cultures, as well as generate revenue to support the German and Swiss cultural center in Oregon, along with a variety of scholarship, athletic and philanthropic programs in the Toledo area.
