Sommerwende - Summer Solstice
The Regina German Club is proud to announce a fun filled family event, called Sommerwende - Summer Solstice. The European practice of welcoming the summer by celebrating the solstice has been a strong tradition for centuries. The Regina German Club is bringing this tradition for the first time to Regina. Join us as we welcome summer by enjoying dancing, music, food and drink. This event will be held over two days, June 21 and June 22. June 21 will be kicking off with a Medieval Style Feast, with light entertainment to follow the supper. Our patio will have a bonfire, and Biergarten. Prata Incendia Fire Performance Troup, will be welcoming the summer season by a fire dance at dusk on out patio. June 22 will start at 2pm with a FREE family portion. This will include street performers, buskers, Summer Solstice Craft Sale, entertainment (both in house, and other cultural groups), kids crafting area and workshops. Of course, we will be bringing back some old time favorite, like the Water Melon Eating Contest, Masquerade Contest - both for adult and children. (No pop culture, dress in your best fairy, wood spirit, etc) Not to mention the large selection of cultural food and drink (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). The evening portion starts at 6 p.m. ($5 pre-purchase, $10 at the door) and will have a great program, including our very own Das Volle Lederpaket Schuhplattler. Afterward the "Dustin Ritter Band" will play all night, so you can dance the night away.
