What is Germania?

Our Mission Statement:

“The purposes of the Germania Society are to maintain and perpetuate the German heritage (in cultural, educational, and social life of the German people), and to serve all German people in the Cincinnati area whether resident or visitor by doing all things necessary, convenient and incident thereto.” – Germania Society Constitution 1964.

The Germania Society of Cincinnati is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our society is committed to maintaining German Heritage throughout Greater Cincinnati. We accomplish this through various events throughout the year. Our main events include the Germania Oktoberfest, the Germania Chriskindlmarkt, the Germania Maifest, twice annual Volksmarches, the Germania Karneval program, and various entertainment and cultural events throughout the year.

Germania also sponsors and promotes various culture programs throughout Greater Cincinnati. These include German language programs in our schools, events at other member societies of the German American Citizens League of Greater Cincinnati, German radio programs, and cultural programs held in our Klubhaus.

Germania Membership Meetings are held on the first Friday each month at 8:00 PM at our Klubhaus. The meeting is preceded by a social hour and light supper served about 7:00 PM. All members and visitors are welcome.

Information about membership can be obtained at any of our events and meetings, or by contacting us.
