The German-American Club of the Carolinas was founded in 1975 to bring together people in the Upstate region of South Carolina who are interested in German culture. The club enjoys a membership of about 140 members, who come from all over the world. Active all year long, the club hosts and participates in fun events like its monthly Stammtisch, the Upstate-International soccer tournament, a Christmas Nikolausfeier, and Spartanburg’s annual international festival.
The Club enjoys a membership of about 140 members, who come from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the United States, and many other countries from around the world. This cultural diversity provides interesting conversations at meetings and social gatherings.
People come and people go... which is a natural occurrence in today's fast-paced world. Some of the club's members have been here since its inauguration. Some have moved on, and new ones have arrived. Nevertheless, the club is just as strong as it was over forty years ago. Some events and ideas have changed during the years; however, the basic themes of interacting with one's neighbors and of exchange and tolerance of cultural differences remain.
