The Enzian Volkstanzgruppe of Newark, Delaware & the United German Hungarians of Philadelphia & Vicinity are pleased and excited to be the hosts of the 30. Gaufest at the Delaware Saengerbund, July 3-6, 2025!
The Delaware Saengerbund, a German-American singing society founded in March 1853, became an important social club for newly arriving German immigrants. Although choral music is still important to the DSB, our activities now encourage the study and use of the German language, culture, traditions and customs. We share the traditional sociability among the German community at large and seek to foster a better understanding of the contributions made by German immigrants to the American way of life.
The Enzian Volkstanzgruppe is a sub-group of the Delaware Sängerbund located in Newark, DE.
