We would like to thank Anita & Bob Radske and Connie Schaefer for recognizing our portfolio and bringing it to these wonderful German-American events. Having just presented our wines at the Consul General’s Residence for the Chelsea Music Festival, we are thrilled to again be connected with a great German institution in New York as we continue our journey which has seen us become the leading German Wine Specialist in the Greater New York area and among the German communities across the country. 

For more information about the Event, please find this welcome message from Bob Radske, General Chairman of the German-American Steuben Parade: 


In 2021 we were the FIRST Parade back on 5th Avenue!! We are happy to invite you to the Steuben Parade for our 65th Anniversary on September 17, 2022! We ask that you follow NYC and CDC Guidelines when attending. If you choose the Parade will, as in past years, be LIVE streamed on our website.

Since 1957 when the first German-American Steuben Parade marched on Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood, Queens, Germanic heritage and culture have proudly been on display in New York City as the Steuben Parade has grown into the largest event of its kind in the United States. With its colorful regional costumes or Trachten, marching bands, decorated floats, social groups and dance groups, no other cultural event in New York City is as entertaining or beloved as the Steuben Parade. This year we are celebrating our 65th Anniversary.

Each September the participants come together to honor their German, Austrian and Swiss-American culture and traditions and to applaud the achievements of the many Germanic immigrants to the United States. The parade also celebrates the enduring friendships between our countries – friendships that have helped end the Cold War, felled the Berlin Wall and created partnerships with far-reaching political, economic and entrepreneurial results.

It gives us great pleasure to welcome our many supporters and the many visitors from out-of-town and overseas who join us each year here in New York City. Among our tens of thousands of friends, I would like to recognize our Grand Marshal who will lead the Steuben Parade up Fifth Avenue and our Junior General who will greet eager spectators from the float….and you for helping to make the parade a success. We hope to see you and your family and friends at the parade.

With warm regards,
Bob Radske

German-American Steuben Parade
