Sommerfest 2024 - Together Around The World

Dear colleagues, former colleagues and guests!

The motto of the 2024 summer festival on 04.07.24 from 12 noon - 6 pm is "Togehter Around The World”. After being a big culinary and social success in 2018, we are looking forward to many international delicacies from all GSI and FAIR colleagues' home countries again this year.

As the saying goes: Come one, come all!

Even better: Bring a good mood and participate enthusiastically :-P

We need your support!

Dear colleagues, a party like this needs many hands...

  • Cake donations 
    • We are happy to receive homemade pastries and cakes (sweet and savoury) for the cake buffet, as they simply taste better than bought baked goods and we then have a great selection.
    • Drop off on the day of the summer festival (04 July 2024) from 10.00 am on in room C35 1.101
  • International dishes
    • Have you always wanted to show off your cooking skills and introduce your national cuisine to your colleagues?
    • Then take part in the international cuisine stalls! The portion size should be offered as a snack or finger food so that as many colleagues as possible can try it.
    • The snacks will be sold at small prices via vouchers.
    • Registration form is available HERE --> Registration extended until 20 June 2024
  • Support with sale assistance, set-up and dismantling, etc.
    • ​​​​​​​We also need many helping hands at the drinks and wine stand, voucher sales, cake buffet, etc.

We are looking forward to your email: festkomitee(at)​​​​​​​
