German American Societies of San Diego invites you!
Dear members and friends –
In light of the continuing COVID-19 situation, extending the Club’s closure thru the end of the Stay-at-home-order for California. We will be sending you regular updates each month or more often if necessary.
On November 7th, 2020, from 2 PM – 6PM we will have an outside Membership event at the Club, with COVID-19 compliant service. Please reserve by calling (619) 442-6637.
We can only be hopeful that this pandemic will run its course, and that we’ll soon be able to resume some of the club’s regular activities and events. We’re especially optimistic that whatever needs to happen in the next year will allow us to resume Oktoberfest in 2021.
With greetings and anxiously awaiting a time when we can all get together again.

For over a hundred years there has been a German presence in San Diego County, such as through the German Club of the San Diego Turners, who published a German-language weekly as early as the late 1800’s. But it was on May 8th, 1965 that a handful of determined Germans started the German American Societies in the Turner Hall.Read more
