The Bayern-Verein Alpengrün was founded in 1932 by Bavarian immigrants with the purpose of carrying on the customs and costumes and traditional folk dancing of Bavaria.
The Bavarian Verein Alpengrün is comprised of enthusiastic children and adults that enjoy Schuhplattlers, figure dances, German music, and Gemütlichkeit [good times”].Everyone, even non-dancers, with a love of the German culture is welcome to join our activities! You can find us entertaining at local festivals, fund raisers and nursing homes. We also travel to attend dances hosted by our friends in both neighboring cities and across North America. We gladly give presentations and school demonstrations on all aspects of Bavarian dancing and traditions.
Everyone is welcome to be part of our wonderful German cultural tradition!
