Good Info from our Fahnenträger

Klaus Vikari, Gauverband Fahnenträger, has written the following that is especially important to those Fahnenträger who will be going to the Münchener Oktoberfest.

I would like to thank all of the Fahnenträger for a beautiful parade of Flags at the 28. Gaufest in Atlantic City.  The representation was full of color and excitement!  We have more great events coming up in the next year! Our next major event is the big showing of our Verein Fahne in München at the Trachtenzug for the 2022 Oktoberfest. 

München Oktoberfest Information

As more detailed information becomes available about the Oktoberfest, it will be posted here. Under Events you'll find a summary of all the posts and info so that you can have "one stop shopping."  The "What to Wear and Expect" presentation has been updated vs. what was published in 2014. Quite a bit of new info, so it's worth another look. Please be sure all your participants are familiar with these expectations.
