What is a Gaufest?


Gaufest Overview

The Gaufest of Gauverband Nordamerika is held every two years, and the next one is organized and run by Edelweiss Passaic and will be held from Thursday, July 7, 2022 through Sunday, July 10, 2022 in Atlantic City, NJ at Harrah's resort. We anticipate over 1000 people and encourage families to attend this destination Gaufest at this fabulous resort.

The mission of the Gauverband Nordamerika, a 501(c)(3) organization, is to preserve and perpetuate the cultural heritage of Bavaria (Germany) and Tyrol (Austria) including its customs, ethnic costumes, language, folk music and folk dances. It provides the member societies in North America with educational programs and opportunities for fellowship through conferences, festivals, and published media; and cultivates ties with heritage societies in Bavaria and Tyrol.

Edelweiss Passaic, Inc., is a charter member of Gauverband Nordamerika and also a 501(c)(3). The Gauverband includes member organizations from 5 provinces of Canada and 21 states in the USA.
