The GISSV hosts and participates in several events during the year. Among our recurring annual events are a traditional Weihnachtsmarkt/Holiday Market, where our Mountain View campus transforms into a bustling “holiday village” for a day, or the Berkeley Family Carnival, which features Brazilian drummers, student performances and many colorful costumes.

Events are a great part of school life and the GISSV community. They bring together parents, students, teachers and staff, and give a perfect opportunity to celebrate, meet new people and engage in conversations.

Some of our events are open to the public and create visibility for the school within its neighborhoods and communities, while other events are internal and celebrate American as well as German holidays, sportsmanship (Walk-a-thon, soccer matches with schools in the Bay Area), music (talent show, Weihnachtskonzert/Holiday Concert, joint musical productions with Bay Area institutions such as Stanford University) and much more!

Back by popular demand, we will again be holding our annual German Holiday Market in Downtown Mountain View! Mark your calendars and join us on December 13 between 11 am and 9 pm at the plaza of the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro Street. 
Come indulge in German food and drinks and browse our eclectic selection of handcrafted gifts from Germany and local artists for purchase. The day will also include musical performances by GISSV students, and, new this year, an ice rink where you can have a stab at your ice skating skills!
Run by a volunteer committee of parents at the German International School of Silicon Valley, the event offers an opportunity to explore the famous tradition of German Holiday Markets right here in Silicon Valley. All proceeds will benefit GISSV’s high-quality bilingual programs.
