German American Festival and Event Page- December

German American Festival and Event Page for December!
Take a look at our list!

Christmas Markets are gearing up! KrampusFests are happening! And there are a lot of German Christmas Services.

See the Full Calendar HERE

Do you know of any Events or German Festival that’s not on the list? Maybe a concert or lecture? Perhaps an online zoom talk, or a museum presentation. I also list Christmas Services in German (I’m working hard to update this… many churches seem to have changed their services)  Send me an email at [email protected]…. it would be helpful if you could include a link to the event. I’ll post the information and pass it on for everyone to see.

As always, double check the linked sites for any schedule changes!
