Welcome (Wilkommen)

The German Canadian Association of Brantford is very proud of our history as one of the original International Villages years ago.

We continue our authentic German entertainment which will feature nightly our own Sunshine Girls, Little Miss Sunshine Girls and our Sonnenhof Dancers. Returning to our Village are The Concordia Club Enzian Schuhplattler and the Schwabenklub Dancers. New this year are the Alpine Dance Group and the Narrgonia Dancers. We welcome you to come and enjoy our hospitality, food and entertainment as you celebrate the “World at Your Doorstep.” 

The German Club was established in 1953 by 70 founding members who brought with them a multitude of skilled craftmen. Our beautiful club house, The Sonnenhof, featuring Southern German architecture was built in 1962.  

We have an active membership and new members are always welcome; German heritage is not a prerequisite for a membership.   Please check out our website for club information, as well as information for booking our site for weddings, parties (large and small), meetings, presentations, or catering options. 

Join us at our Oktoberfest which will be in September. This year again we will be having a great “NEW YEARS BASH” – don’t miss out on a fun filled year end party. Our social events are open to everyone – come out and join us.

We would like to welcome you to the SONNENHOF.

Alles Gute,
all the best from the Villages Committee
German-Canadian Association Brantford
