Anna Clauss, journalist for the German magazine Der Spiegel, is currently in Denver as a part of the Arthuer F. Burns Fellowship, which sends German and American journalists to each other’s countries on exchange. While in her new Colorado home, Clauss took the time to get a little slice of her native Bavaria at the Denver Oktoberfest.
Wunderbar Together brought the Wiesn in a Box to the Denver Oktoberfest, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! This annual six-day festival attracts over 250,000 people to enjoy German food, beer, and music!
As the official roadshow of Wunderbar Together, the Goethe PopUp Tour combines an impressive culture tent with mobile container exhibits and various pop-up edutainment elements.
Oktoberfest may not be kicking off in Munich until next month, but here in the US, Wiesn in a Box has been bringing the spirit of the famous Bavarian festival across America all year. Next stop: Texas!
In this guest blog, Christoph Mücher, Director of Wunderbar Together, writes about his experience getting immersed in Pennsylvania Dutch culture at the 70th annual Kutztown Folk Festival in Kutztown, PA.
