The German School Brooklyn and the Parents Association of the German School Brooklyn presents the 4th annual Family Oktoberfest, on September 30, 2018.

The German Consulate General Recommends:

The 4th Annual Family Oktoberfest is a family friendly version of a traditional Oktoberfest but reimagined as a Brooklyn inspired street festival. It will feature the amazing and electrifying All Saint Brass Band, DJ Fatboi, a theater performance by Galli Theater, kids dance performances and our annual Fashion Show. Local German Restaurant DSK will have cold kegs of beer on standby and you can expect authentic and mouthwatering Bratwursts, Pretzels and a variety of salads. Expect loads of kid’s activities from bean-bag toss to our photo booth with a 14’ tall double slide as our highlight. Greenlight Bookstore will be on site selling German as well as English titles. CityKinder, Heimat Abroad, The Green Grape will also have a presence. FC Bayern Munich Mascot BERNI will be there!

There will be a RAFFLE with over 15 fun prices from restaurant vouchers to a one-year membership to the Brooklyn Children Museum.

The German School Brooklyn opened its doors in September 2014 in the heart of Brooklyn at Grand Army Plaza.  The school launched its elementary school program with Grades K, 1 and 2 and will grow one grade per year until the final diploma (planned: IB English/German and High School diploma). The school’s mission is to amplify the unique potential of every child so they can achieve the greatest version of themselves – as learners, leader and global citizens for the future.

The 4th Annual Family Oktoberfest is the main fundraiser organized by the Parent Association in cooperation with the school to raise funds to help the school grow and prosper. This year’s funds will be used to start a GSB sports team.

This event is co-sponsored by DSK and Brooklyn Solar Works, and is open to the public. Live music and performances are free of charge. Kids activities, drinks and food are being charged.

Location and time:
Hanson Place between South Oxford Ave and South Portland Ave, Brooklyn, NY,
(a few short blocks from Barclays Center)
Sunday, September 30th from 12noon – 5PM.
