German-American Day History

German-American Day celebrates German culture and heritage in the United States. This holiday also serves to remember 13 German families from Krefeld, Germany that fled religious oppression in Germany. On October 6th, 1683, these families established Germantown, Pennsylvania, the first distinctly German-American settlement. In the centuries that followed, more than seven million more German-speaking immigrants arrived on the shores of the US.

In 1983, on the 300th anniversary of Germantown, President Ronald Reagan declared October 6th as German-American Day. President Reagan officially declared German-American Day four years later in 1987. German-American Day is celebrated annually on October 6th.

fun fact before it was "German-American Day" it used to just be "German Day" but tradition died out due to WWI and didn't revive as "German-American Day" until 1983
