The 55th Annual German-American Steuben Parade In New York City

A3P | In honor of Baron von Steuben, his military career and his services to the Continental Army at Valley Forge.

For over fifty years, the German-American Steuben Parade has grown into the largest event of its kind in the United States. No other festival in New York City is as colorful and as much fun as our parade with hundreds of music and dance groups, the wildly costumed and masked Karneval groups, the folks in their historic Tracht, the marksmen and all the other marchers on Fifth Avenue.

They come together every year to celebrate German-American culture and traditions, and to applaud the achievements of German immigrants to the United States.

Washington Crossing The Delaware River
“Washington Crossing the Delaware River” is one of the most important paintings in American history. Painted by German-born Emanuel Leutze, it is unique in its size and its composition highlighting George Washington as the hero of the Revolutionary War. Over a period of four years this piece was restored and reframed and is now on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the centerpiece of the new American Wing. (Click image to expand…)

    Part of our unique European American culture. You know, the one that the 'Liberals' says doesn't exist!
