German American Day

Beyond providing an excellent reason to indulge in bratwurst and beer, German-American Day on October 6th commemorates the anniversary of the initial arrival of German immigrants in America. Ever since their establishment of Germantown in Pennsylvania, German immigrants and their descendants have profoundly influenced American culture and history. Their contributions range from initiating the first Kindergartens to shaping the legend of Santa Claus—more than meets the eye! Today, we celebrate the rich culture and delve into the historical impact of Germans in America.
