Welcome - Willkommen!
The Federation Of German American Societies consists of twelve organizations whose shared purpose is to promote German culture in Western New York. These organizations are vital to the continuation of German heritage and traditions in the Buffalo-Niagara Region.
Numerous German contributions such as the establishment of the first kindergartens in the United States, Yule and Christmas tree customs and foods like hamburgers and hot dogs have become so ubiquitous in American culture that their origins are often forgotten.
We invite you to explore the BuffaloGerman.com website and learn more. We hope you join us for one of our many events, consider participating in one of our organizations and show your support!
