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 2017 Oktoberfest will be held at the Ormond Plantation in Destrehan on Saturday, October 14, 2017.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. John Doucet and his topic is "Genetics and Genealogy in South Louisiana".  

Additional parking is available by driving between the big house and the dining hall.
