1958 the first German-American Steuben Parade took place.
Named after General Frederick Wilhelm von Steuben, a major player in the American Independence War.
Hundreds of German-American Organizations are represented.
The Parade’s aim is to provide the American public in general and our civic leaders in particular with a
reminder of the part played by germanic immigrants and their descendants in the development of the United States of America.
The Parade is to instill in those with Germanic heritage a deep-rooted sense of pride of origin and accomplishment.
Statistics tell that German-Americans are the largest ethnic group in the USA.
The Parade is sponsored by the German-American Committee of Greater New York,
Inc. and its organization is the sole responsibility of the German-American Steuben Parade Committee.
