Bratwurst, red cabbage, ox-on-the-tail, pastries, folk dancing and Oom-pah music filled the square at the German American Societies of San Diego in El Cajon over the past two weekends. Once again, bringing in the Buggenbach-Baum band from Baden-Württemberg, Germany, people ate, drank and celebrated German heritage in authentic style.

Bratwurst, red cabbage, ox-on-the-tail, pastries, folk dancing and Oom-pah music filled the square at the German American Societies of San Diego in El Cajon over the past two weekends. Once again, bringing in the Buggenbach-Baum band from Baden-Württemberg, Germany, people ate, drank and celebrated German heritage in authentic style.

This two weekend festival is made possible by an all volunteer staff and over the course of two weekends, drew thousand in to enjoy this highly anticipated yearly celebrations. Folk dancers performed traditional dances and the dance floor never emptied while the band played on. Much of the celebration came with authentic German regalia that added to the spirit of the entire event. Although a German American celebration, this event is always open to the public and has grown year-to-year, with this year being the largest yet, expanding the venue with more booths for authentic German clothing and collectibles, a Kids Zone and as much table space for as many “beeramids” that participants could make.
