Willkommen! Welcome!

Welcome to the Gold Country German American Club! PDFphoto-0

The German-American Club was founded to provide California residents with an active connection to the traditions, music, language, food, and social customs of Europe and the Old Country.  Although many of the members came to the United States from Germany or Austria, at least half of the members are from other European countries or were born in America, and are interested in the German culture and the activities that the Club offers. In addition to regular meetings held on the first Friday of each month, many members participate in the Happy Wanderers Hiking Club, the Alpine Dancers Group, the Germania Voices Choir and Conversational German Classes. The monthly meetings usually have a theme such as Fasching/Carnival, Maifest, the Annual Picnic, Western Night, German-American Day, Strauss Night and the Christmas Dinner.  This is not just a club that holds meetings and talks endlessly – meetings include delicious food, maybe some singing, possibly live entertainment, and always dancing. Members of the Gold Country German-American Club are a very friendly and interesting group who love social events and always welcome visitors and newcomers with genuine warmth. All meetings are held in English. More details: GCGAC flyer
