DEUTSCHES HAUS DONATES $20,000 TO THE CITY OF KENNER

Feb 5, 2013   //   by Brian Jones   //   Press Release  //  No Comments

Deutsches Haus President Keith Oldendorf and Oktoberfest Chairman Thomas Mertz recently presented Kenner Mayor Michael Yenni with a $20,000 donation to be used by the City’s Parks and Recreation Department for various projects.

Deutsches Haus is a local German Cultural and Heritage Organization, which in 2011 moved its annual Oktoberfest from New Orleans to Kenner’s Rivertown. Crowds at the 2012 festival were estimated at 15,000, and Deutsches Haus leaders have already announced plans to return to Kenner for the 2013 event, which will take place during the last three weeks of October.

“The city of Kenner has been very welcoming and helpful to us in this time of transition,” said Oldendorf. “We are very much looking forward to our new permanent location, as well as many more Oktoberfests to come, and the City of Kenner has been instrumental in helping us get there. This is a small thank you.”

Prior to being moved to Kenner, Oktoberfest was held for 82 years at Deutsches Haus’ former headquarters on South Galvez Street in New Orleans. When that location was demolished to provide space for the new University Medical Center, Deutsches Haus moved to its temporary location at 1023 Ridgewood Dr., in Metairie, and partnered with the City of Kenner to bring Oktoberfest to Rivertown.

Annual Oktoberfest celebration carries on at Deutsches Haus

Oct 15, 2012   //   by Brian Jones   //   Featured, News, Oktoberfest 2012  //  No Comments

Long the New Orleans area standard-bearer for Oktoberfest merriment, Deutsches Haus, the month-long festival that dishes out authentic German food, drink and music, is drawing large crowds to Kenner in October.

Deutsches Haus is all about authenticity, with German beers, cabbage rolls, bratwurst and goulash, as well as desserts in the German kaffeeklatsch tradition, such as strudels, apple cakes or variations on Black Forest cakes. And, that goes for the music as well. Acts, such as the Bayou Bavarians, Dixie Hofkapelle and the Brats, were scheduled to perform.

This is the festival’s second year in Kenner. Their home of 82 years on South Galvez Street was demolished in 2011 to make room for the forthcoming University Medical Center. Now the Deutsches Haus will use revenue from this year’s Oktoberfest to help build a new facility on a tract of land on Moss Street in Bayou St. John.
