24th Annual VonSteuben Germanfest

24th Annual VonSteuben Germanfest

 

Sullivan County of New York is renowned for its spectacular scenic views and brilliant red, yellow, and orange foliage colors. It is the home to a number of great fall events, including (but certainly not limited to) Germanfest.



Despite the nasty weather the Von Steuben Day annual parade and Germanfest began in Yulan as planned on September 13th. Hundreds of folks with children and without showed up for the festival, enjoying never ending pitchers of beer, German food, the music of “Musikverein” and German dancing.


Crafters booths drown the interest of the public and the kids corner was very popular and well attended.





Founded in 1957, the Annual Steuben Parade on Fifth Avenue and an Octoberfest-fest gathering in Central Park have given New Yorkers a chance to celebrate their German-Americanheritage a bit closer to home, the Yulan parade was organazed by volunteer fire companies and sponsored by local businesses to give folks a chance to enjoy German heritage and the colorful change of seasons.

I am so jealous! I love German food and beer! The only thing which is bad about them is that I tend to drink and eat too much.
