The festivities will include traditional German folk dancing, live accordion music, and a keynote by a senior member of the GACSRI centered on the history of the German community in Rhode Island.
The menu will feature garden salad, schweinebraten (roast pork with gravy), hausgemacht spaetzle (homemade pasta), GACSRI’s famous sauerkraut, schwartzwälder kirschtorte (black forest chocolate cake), and coffee. Each guest will also receive a complimentary authentic German beer from the Society’s renowned tap wall or a glass of wine.
All proceeds will benefit the Mill Project, a new digital exhibit currently under development at the Museum of Work & Culture.
A Moveable Feast is a series of bi-monthly programs celebrating holidays throughout the year with food, entertainment, and a history lesson at restaurants in Northern Rhode Island. It is presented as part of the Rhode Island Historical Society’s Relishing Rhode Island, a yearlong look at the state’s rich and diverse culinary history.
