German is the third most common native language in Arizona. Unsurprisingly there are also a great number of germanic events and organizations in the state.
Some are long established events such as the Tempe-Stammtisch that has been meeting every Friday for over 35 years. Some are new traditions such as AC4GC's annual authentic from the germanic community Phoenix Oktoberfest.
