2017 Mid-Atlantic Kinderfest

June 3, 2017

at Germania Park, Dover, NJ
Hosted by
Edelweiss Passaic


The members of Edelweiss Passaic are excited and proud to be hosting the upcoming Mid-Atlantic Kinderfest on June 3, 2017 at Germania Park, Dover, NJ. We anticipate welcoming over 300 children and their families from the various German dance clubs in the Mid-Atlantic region; New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, DC, to this fun filled and culture sharing event. The purpose of Kinderfest is to foster and promote the heritage and culture of Bavaria and other regions of Germany. An added benefit for the attending children is to meet other children their own age, share in the cultural experience, and potentially form friendships that may last a lifetime.

The day will begin with a parade of all the participating children followed by national anthems and a group picture. Onlookers will admire the talents of each of the Kindergroups from the attending dance clubs as they perform a folk dance or Schuhplattler. In addition to the cultural activities, carnival style games, crafts, and other activities will be enjoyed by the children throughout the day.
