Besides the activities of these groups, the club also holds a variety of traditional functions throughout the year.
We celebrate spring with the Maifest (May Day Festival) and autumn with Oktoberfest. Our traditional Oktoberfest is held at the Clubhouse, usually over more than one weekend. Since these events are always well attended, it is a good idea to make reservations early.
The Club also holds other dance parties throughout the year, many with a special theme. The Schuhplattler stage a Bayernfest (Bavarian Festival) every spring, and the Schützen (Shooters) present the Schützenfest (Shooters Festival) in the spring and the Jägerball (Hunters’ Ball) in the fall.
We must not forget the Christmas parties: one for the children, and one for the adults. Finally, there is the big blow-out of the year, the New Year’s Eve Gala.
The Annual Christkindlmarkt (Christmas Market) is a major event for the Club that takes place every year on the third weekend in November, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This market has become a favourite in the area, not only for those who come to shop, but also for the vendors who come from all over Ontario and Quebec and sell a wide variety of items. You will find a special treasure for everyone on your Christmas shopping list. There are refreshments available in the Schenke, where you will find something for every appetite from snacks to hearty meals as well as wonderful cakes, coffee and Glühwein (hot mulled, or spiced, red wine).
The Schnitzel Dinner, offered to members and non-members on the third Friday of every month from January to April, has proven to be very popular. The evening provides an enjoyable meal at a very affordable price, in a relaxed atmosphere with only background music. The popularity of these dinners means that reservations are required and can be made by calling the Club.
All of these parties and events are announced and described on our events page.
