The Annual German-Acadian Coast Historical and Genealogical Society Oktoberfest takes place each October in place of the monthly meeting.  The Oktoberfest dinner begins with a social hour where members and their guests can mingle with one another.  Later, the President of the GACHGS will make a few opening comments and a meal is served.  At this time the featured Guest Speaker will make a presentation.

The 2013 Oktoberfest will be held at the Ormond Plantation in Destrehan on Saturday, October 19, 2013.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Gerald Keller and his topic is "The Human Side of the Civil War in the River Parishes"
