Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures
Celebrating German culture can mean a number of things, from showing off your lung capacity in an Oktoberfest Alphorn-blowing contest to sipping Gulasch soup at a traditional German Christmas market. The Arizona Center for Germanic Cultures embraces these activities and more with a variety of events, which honor German traditions more effectively than befriending a life-size statue of an Alp. Beyond Oktoberfest and Christkindlmarkt festivities, the center also hosts a film festival that highlights filmmakers with Germanic roots.
