Celebrating National German Week 2016

October 6 is German-American Day!

German-American Day was first proclaimed a holiday in the US in 1983 to honor the 300th anniversary of German immigration to the US. It commemorates the date in 1683 when 13 German families from Krefeld, near the Rhine, landed in Philadelphia. These families subsequently established the first German settlement in the original thirteen American colonies.

Celebrate German-American heritage today!  Be sure to include Hannah, the National German Week mascot, in your festivities. Share your photos on our Facebook page or Tweet @AATGOnline
