St. Paul Oktoberfest - September 9, 2023

The Germanic-American Institute (GAI) hosts the St. Paul Oktoberfest each September as the evenings begin to get cool. This celebration of German culture is always an anticipated kick-off to the Oktoberfest season. The spacious grounds of GAI come alive with music, dance, good food and tasty beer! Originally founded by Bruce Larson, aka "The Kaiser", a long time friend and supporter of GAI, Oktoberfest continues to be celebrated each fall in his honor. (See the last slide in this album for a portrait of the Kaiser and a tribute to his memory.)
