    Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza 2022

    What started out 14 years ago as a Democrats Abroad “FUN-draiser” is now one of DA’s premier events worldwide. Come to Munich’s Oktoberfest, with Democrats from all around the world, in one of the most traditional beer tents - and finally in-person after two years! 

    Join us on Sunday, October 2, 2022 in Munich, Germany for the Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! This is a fun event for DA members from around Germany and Europe to come together and have a good time.

    We have reservations in the Festhalle Schottenhamel for tables in the "Gallerie", specifically an area upstairs so that we are above the main crowd, from 11am until 2:15pm.

    Get your tickets now for $85. All proceeds go to supporting our get out the vote efforts for the 2022 midterms.

    Each ticket includes:

    • A reserved seat in the “Gallerie”
    • A roasted half chicken (there are vegetarian options available)
    • Two liters of Spaten beer (there are other beverage options, too) 
    • A 10-euro coupon for other purchases

    To reserve your tickets, please RSVP and send in your donation.

    In addition to the Oktoberfest celebration on Sunday, you can already sign-up for a walking tour of the Munich Altstadt on Saturday, October 1st. Information about additional events will be announced soon.

    Interested in a homestay in Munich or hosting a DA visitor? Fill out the appropriate Google form. We’ll do our best to match guests with a wonderful host. We cannot guarantee you will be assigned a homestay. This is dependent on volunteer sign-up.

    DACH Geneva Book Club - October 2022

    Our October 2022 book is The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt. From Amazon:

    First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: What doesn’t kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths contradict basic psychological principles about well-being and ancient wisdom from many cultures.

    Please join us even if you haven't read the book!

    Additional information about this (and future) event(s) can be found here.


    October's meeting will take place on Zoom and in-person in Geneva; RSVP or send an email to Sam to receive the meeting details. If you aren't already on the Geneva Book Club mailing list, you can send an email to Sam letting him know you'd like to be added.
