How to get involved

Change is inevitable — except from a vending machine. ~Robert C. Gallagher

Please join us at one of our board meetings and see what we’re all about.

Your German-Texan Heritage Society would like to see you get involved.

Together we can move mountains.

Next board meeting is planned for August 19th at 507 E. 10th Street, Austin, Texas 78701.


To give and then not feel that one has given is the very best of all ways of giving. ~Max Beerbohm

We also ask kindly that if it is within your power, you donate to Mr. Rudy, our kids entertainer. Mr. Rudy is at all of our festivities entertaining young and old. He recently got diagnosed with prostate cancer and would appreciate any help with his medical bills. He is trying to raise $17000 on his go fund me page at Mr. Rudy’s Get Well Fund or you can donate via PayPal of Venmo under

Mr Rudy would like to get a procedure that’s minimally invasive and 90% effective with little to no side effects, called “Hyperthermia”. This procedure has been used in Germany for over 20 years. Check out this link if you’d like to learn more about it.


Our Festivals would like to see you!

Maifest, Oktoberfest, Christmas Market...

If you like German music, food and beer, please consider being a volunteer!

Next volunteer opportunity is at Oktoberfest. We will need people to help with set up, clean up, cashier, refreshments and more. Please sign up here to be a volunteer. Thank you!

Do you love to garden? Our beautiful gardens would like to see you and your eager hands to do some magic.  There are weeds to be pulled and bushes to be pruned. The gardens have a lot of potential. It is up to our volunteers to unlock such potential.
