Carole and Tom, during the Edelweiss Dance Group performance at the 2010 International Dance Festival in Leavenworth.


It’s Octoberfest time in Leavenworth. Having grown up in Germany to German/Austrian parents, Octoberfest brings back a lot of memories for me. I belong to a German folkdance group that will be performing each Saturday (schedule below) and I’d love to have you come watch us and then stay to listen to the German bands and dance. German music tends to be mostly Polkas and Viennese Waltzes, so be prepared to sweat! Entry fee: $20/person.

Oct 16  ::  Bier Stube 1:45-2:15pm, Festhalle 5:00-5:30pm, Tanzhalle 7:45-8:15pm
