The Danube Swabian Association of Philadelphia and Vicinity serves the local community as a center for German culture, sports, education, and social activities. Formed in 1958, primarily by ethnic German immigrants who came to the United States in the aftermath of World War II, the organization continues to honor and uphold its traditions by promoting the language, music, dance, dress, and customs of the Danube Swabian people.
