Landestrachtenfest und Tanzwettbewerb

     Tanzwettbewerb means that there is a competition between all the groups that go to the Trachtenfest.
     Every city is allowed 15 minutes of song, dance, speaking in German, poems, their Trachts, etc.  Whoever has the most points will win what is called the "Awender Cultural Prize" which is First Place.

Landestreffen der Donauschwaben

     Landestreffen is usually a smaller gathering, but it does include dance, song, etc. but not to win an award.
     It is done only for the fun of it. The youth get together only for friendship without the pressure of winning a competition


     Trachtenfest is the Fest that is held with a parade of all the different cities that participate with each city carrying their city flag. In the USA and Canada, the parade is usually held by going around the club and gathering on the soccer field with welcoming speeches from presidents and dignitaries.

     In Europe they have the parade through the town where the fest is held and then to their town church.


     A "Tracht" is an outfit that the women and men wear.   The clothing they wear represent the many different regions and locations of their homeland.   A lot of the clothing today is an authentic reproduction of the original clothing, but many of our young ladies are wearing the original clothing their grandmothers wore in Yugoslavia, Hungary, etc.

     The Labor Day Fest has a different name every 3 years then repeats itself.
