Germania of Poughkeepsie, founded 1850, is a benevolent, not for profit organization committed to promoting German American Heritage throughout the Hudson Valley, hosting various events throughout the year including Maifest, Oktoberfest, Christkindlmarkt, and Heritage Day Bake Sale at the Galleria Mall.


Over the past 168 years Germania has done much to enrich the community by sponsoring educational programs in music, sport, dance, and citizenship. Germania sponsors numerous "Sister Clubs" and promotes many cultural programs. These include the German Singers, Germania Almrausch Schuhplattler Verein, the Steuben Society of America (Dr. Charles Gilbert Spross Unit #167) and their Germania Blue & White Soccer Club. Germania also sponsors German Language Classes, Ballroom Dancing Classes and a Volksmarch Club.


Germania is proud of the numerous prizes won by their chorus, the trophies won by their soccer teams, including numerous NYS Championships, and the repeated requests for performances and honors won by their Schuhplattler dance group.  Throughout the year Germania holds clothing, food and toy drives for Hudson Valley churches and their families, as well as grants annual scholarships to BOCES CTI Culinary program graduates.


Germania believes in supporting the local community by procuring goods and services exclusively through locally owned, Hudson Valley businesses. Germania remains a private club, and is actively looking to increase membership, along with Club Sponsorship and Event Vendors.  Enrollment is open to individuals of all faiths and backgrounds.
