Von Steuben Parade

The parade celebrates Baron Friedrich von Steuben, who came to this country as a volunteer offering his services to General George Washington.  General von Steuben converted the revolutionary army into a disciplined fighting force, instilling in them much needed inspiration, confidence and competence.

The annual Von Steuben Parade is the German American Event of the year.  It is held in September, when hundreds of participants march, dance, play music or ride the many beautiful floats on Lincoln Avenue and join the festivities later at the German-American Fest.
