Whatever your heritage, the German Christmas Show should please both young and old alike. It is a great way to allow the spirit of the Holiday season to dwell in us during this time of the year … with a German twist. There is limited seating, so reservations are required. Tickets are $35 in advance and include both the Rouladen and chicken dinner and the German Christmas Show.

The Fort Wayne Sport Club was founded in 1927 by an active group of soccer players who immigrated to the Fort Wayne area from Germany in the aftermath of World War I. Their immediate goal was ‘the promotion of football (soccer) and German culture’ in the Northeast Indiana area. Today, the Fort Wayne Sport Club is a hub of soccer activity, with programs for recreational and competitive soccer players from age 4-years to 30-and-over. “We are extremely proud of our long history and heritage of encouraging participation in soccer at all levels throughout the area,” stated Dan Kruse, President of Fort Wayne Sport Club.
