May 11  –  ‘Weisser Spargel’ Dinner Event in San Francisco

One night, three courses, one exclusive ingredient: Join the GACC West for their annual White Asparagus Gala Dinner in San Francisco.

It is the season in which one of the German’s favorite vegetable is being harvested: white asparagus.

This vegetable is so exquisite that the German American Chamber of Commerce (GACC West) dedicates an entire evening to it – an evening to which the GACC West would like to hereby cordially invite you.

The White Asparagus Gala Dinner is a one-of-a-kind event showcasing the German delicacy, which is harvested at one of Germany’s best Spargelhof and flown in exclusively for this very evening. This “edible ivory” serves thereby as the core ingredient in the exquisite three-course meal, which will be complemented by an exclusive tasting of Bluxome’s locally sourced fine wines.

German Theater Workshop for Kids in SoCal


The German American School Association presents a Fairytale Theater Workshop in German at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim!

The theatre workshop offers an interactive theatre program for children ages 6-15 featuring a modern adaptation of the classic fairytale “Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten”.

During this workshop, children are encouraged to try out new ideas and become acquainted with different perspectives. Discovering their own body language helps them to adapt to new roles. Through the development of their own creativity and the joy of play-acting, a world of possibilities opens to them.

Yvonne Zech, actress and trainer with the Galli Theater Group in Wiesbaden, Germany, specializes in educational children’s theater projects and will guide the children through the day-long program.

A Frankfurter lunch is included. (Please pack a lunch if your child has allergies or food restrictions.)

Parents, family, and friends are invited to the final performance later in the afternoon at 5:15pm.

Between the workshop and the performance, a dinner selection will be available for purchase for you and your family. Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
Last day to register is February 15th! Enroll HERE.
