GACC German Bier Garten - Willkommen

April newsletter, reminding everyone that our Maifest Beer Garden is coming up on May 13. We will have wonderful food, great beer and perfect music, so don’t miss it! And if you didn’t make it to the March meeting to hear Peter Wolf talk about his great-grantfather, Leon Godchaux, you can read about his presentation. We hope you enjoy it, and we look forward to seeing you on May 13.

Get Your GACC Calendar to Welcome the New Year!

For four years in a row, the GACC has produced a calendar with historic images of Gretna from our large photography archive. With photos of early cotton oil industries, railroad workers, turn-of-the-century retail businesses in the old downtown and mom and pop corner stores, these calendars capture life in long-ago Gretna.

The NEW German-American Cultural Center 2023 calendar is here. This 13-month calendar has color images from our historic collection, and the front and back covers display great pictures of the “German Breweries and Beer Gardens” of the area’s past.


Visit Our Museum

Step inside the GACC Museum and go back in time to 1721, when German immigrants first settled in Louisiana. You’ll learn about the waves of German pioneers that followed them to establish homes, farms and businesses across the river from New Orleans. Entry is free of charge to our museum, open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday.
