AN IMPORTANT UPDATE

June 22, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Cancelation of the
2020 German-American Steuben
Parade Philadelphia


(Philadelphia & Vicinity) Due to recently instituted restrictions the Steuben Day Observance Association announces the cancelation of what would have been the 50th German-American Steuben Parade as well as the Gala originally scheduled for September of this year.

While our proud German-Americans will not march forth this year in heritage, pride, and remembrance of our shared history and culture, the Steuben Day Observance Association strongly supports any efforts by and for our member clubs, associations, societies and their member families as well as the communities in Rockledge and Fox Chase. Our community is strong because the cultures of the clubs and their members drive our story and our way of life.

Now, we call on all members of our community to support your local club, when they are open for food & beverage sales, events, fundraising and more. The continuance of the pride of being an American of German descent lies at the clubs.

Remembering Bruno Karnas

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bruno Karnas who left us during the evening of April 16, 2020 from complications due to COVID-19.

“Bruno Karnas had a vision and worked tirelessly to lead our Philadelphia area German American Community to march at an unprecedented pace. My sincere condolences to the Karnas Family and all of Bruno's friends at the Cannstatter Volksfest Verein and the G.T.V. Almrausch.” - Werner Fricker Jr.

Bruno led our community as President and General Chairman of our Parade for many years. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family especially his wife Astrid at this difficult time.
