Gaufest Workshops - What's in Store?

The schedule for the Gaufest is on the Gaufest host's website at this link: 25 Gaufest Milwaukee.  The content of the four workshops planned for Saturday afternoon are shown below.  Note: Two workshops are also planned in the Volksmusik Stube on Friday; these are shown on the Gaufest schedule as well as below.

Reporter from Bayerischer Rundfunk Coming to Gaufest

At the Einweihung in Holzhausen this spring, Gauvorstand Tom Vogt met German reporter Barbara Leidl of the Bayerischer Rundfunk. She’s doing a one-hour feature for the radio station Bayern 2 about Bavarian dance groups in North America. To get to know us better, Barbara is traveling from her home in the Washington, D.C., area to the Gaufest in Milwaukee. While there, she’d like to observe the many activities that we have during the weekend as well as interview and tape people.

Sources for Volksmusik & Volkslieder

At the 2014 Delegates Meeting, Gau-Musikwart Rick Michels distributed a list of links to sites to download notes for Volksmusik and Volkslieder. A great resource for musicians and singers!  You can find the link under the “Music” tab or click on this link: Where to find Volksmusik


Einzelpreisplatteln Deadline June 10

The deadline to register for Einzelpreisplatteln to be held at this year's Gaufest is June 10. Dancers must be registered through the on-line registration system set up by the host Verein, D'Oberlandler Milwaukee. The administrator for each Verein has the necessary access to complete this task. This deadline is set by the dance officers of the Gauverband to coincide with the upcoming judges training session this weekend. At that meeting, the dance order for the Einzelpreisplatteln couples will be determined.

Holzhausen - Videos about Grand Opening

Here are links to three videos about the grand opening festivities in Holzhausen on May 2, 2015.  The fourth link takes you to five articles from Bavarian newspapers about the opening.

Holzhausen to Celebrate Grand Opening!

Gauvorstand Tom Vogt, Ehrengauvorstand Walter Wieand, Gaubeisitzer Bob Hugel, and Gaufahnenträger Klaus Vikari are on their way to Bayern to take part in the grand opening of the Trachtenkulturzentrum in Holzhausen. The festivities on Saturday, May 2, will start with a church service in the inner courtyard of the complex and continue all day and Sunday. As each of the buildings has been completed over the last 10 years, there has been an opening to celebrate its introduction.
