  “Cruising at the Haus”

Since we had such a good response from the hundreds of people who attended the cruise nights here earlier this year, the German American Heritage Center is having our own Friday Night Cruises.

We invite you to bring your cars and visit us Friday evenings from 4:00pm until dusk. Food and drinks will be available for purchase and can be enjoyed on our patio.

We will update our pages for any cancellations by noon if it looks like inclement weather.

Oktoberfest



Location: The German-American Heritage Center is easy to find.

From Chicago—I-57 south to Exit 335-Manhattan/Monee Road right (west) for 4.3 miles to 96th Avenue. Turn right (north) for 0.3 miles and our building is on the right.

From west—I-80 exit LaGrange Road (Rt 45) south 5.1 miles to Laraway Road. Turn left (east) for 1.3 miles to Center Road. Turn right (south) for 3.9 miles and our building is on the left.

The German American National Congress, also known as DANK (Deutsch Amerikanischer National Kongress), is the largest organization of Americans of German descent. The DANK has some 30 chapters and over 100 associated member societies from coast to coast.

The DANK organization seeks to bring together Americans of German descent in the pursuit of cultivating and presenting their heritage and interests on local, regional and national levels. These were the primary reasons that DANK (German American National Congress) was founded in 1959, and they are still among the primary objectives of DANK today.
