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 1957, 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.

Upcoming Events



Club Picnic - Pig Roast


Sunday, July 16, 2017 -- 1:00 p.m.

Please join us for our annual club picnic and pig roast! This is always a fun event with great German food. Cost is $25 for adults, $12 for youth (10 to 20 years old), and $6 for children under 10.

This annual event is a favorite as all food and drink (domestic draft beer and soda) are included in the low price. There are plenty of other meats, salads, and desserts offered that day.

Please make your reservations by Tuesday, July 11 as we must order the pig that day. To make your reservation, call Hans at 267-770-6898 or Fred at 215-722-4253. Members, friends, and neighbors are welcome!
