About Us

Schuhplattler und Gebirgstrachten Verein Washingtonia translates to Shoe-slapping and Mountain Costume Club of Washington. Our club promotes the dance, music, culture and ‘Gemütlichkeit’ (genuine happiness) of Bavaria!

No Oktoberfest or International Festival is complete without a traditional bell ringing, knee slapping German Schuhplattler dance group!

This year we are celebrating 100 years of traditional Bavarian dancing and music in Washington, DC!
