The Steuben Parade of New York is the largest celebration of German-American culture in the United States... if you´ve ever seen it, you know how much fun it is; hundreds of marching groups, music, dance, people in colorful costume and Tracht, marksmen and school groups, beautiful floats. German-Americans are proud of their history and heritage, and they have been showing their pride on New York City´s famed Fifth Avenue for over half a century.

Tens of thousands of people watch the Steuben Parade every year as it marches alongside Central Park. However, thousands more can´t make it to New York to celebrate with us - now, we´re bringing the Parade to them. The 2012 Steuben Parade will be produced as a live TV broadcast for PBS affiliates WNET and WLIW, and we will follow up the broadcast with a professionally produced DVD for all friends and fans who would like to watch this spectacle of transatlantic friendship from the comfort of their homes.

While the Steuben Parade is sponsored by the German-American Committee of Greater New York, and while sponsors are helping with the cost of the TV broadcast, we do need help with the production of the DVD; the funds raised here are for the professional editing, production and packaging of the Steuben Parade DVD. Please help us make sure that the broadcast will not just air once or twice, but that the 2012 Steuben Parade will live on as a silver disc to be played again and again.

For more information on the Steuben Parade, please visit www.GermanParadeNYC.org or "friend" us at www.facebook.com/Steuben - thank you for your support, and we are looking forward to seeing you on Fifth Avenue.

In case you can´t make it, with our help, there will be a DVD ready for you to enjoy at home. - Thank you for your support.
