The various German organizations and festival groups welcome and encourage family reunions, groups, motorcoach bus tours and other German associations to plan their gathering in conjunction with one of our annual German events. Getting your relatives together to enjoy a German meal or polka fest is great way to renew family relationships, catch up on the latest news, commemorate heritage, celebrate proud moments, and remember loved ones. Reunions provide an atmosphere for families to reminiscence, create new memories and pass on family traditions to the younger generation.

Your group will enjoy eating together and feast on delicious Ellis County German food prepared by the ladies with the local church groups and civic clubs. Events like Fidelis Fest, Herzog Fest, The Harold Dorzweiler Cancer Memorial Polka Fest and the Oktoberfest held during the Fort Hays State University Homecoming are great events to enjoy polka music and dancing. Herzog Fest and The Harold Dorweiler Cancer Memorial Polka Fest also have a Polka Mass. “I can take care of my Sunday Mass obligation, and still enjoy tapping my toe to some good polka music” commented one local Volga German resident.
