Isargau Gauverband Celebrating 100 Years

The Isargau Gauverband was founded in 1919 in München and is the 10th oldest Gauverband in the Bayerischer Trachtenverband.  This upcoming weekend (June 22-23) the Isargau Gaufest will be held in Ismaning near München.  The host Verein, Trachtenverein Ismaning Stamm, will be celebrating its 110. Jubiläum.  The Isargau is expecting 60 Vereine and 3,000 Trachtler and Trachtlerinnen to take part in the Sunday Festzug.  Herzlichen Glückwunsch!


Remembering Otto Dufter

I received sad news from Bavaria that Otto Dufter passed away on the morning of June 13, 2019. Otto was a good friend to Gauverband Nordamerika and will be sorely missed. He did much to strengthen the ties between our organization and the Bayerischer Trachtenverband and visited us in North America at a few of our Gaufeste with his wife Hilde.

Gaufest Bauernmesse Singers

Attention Singers!  If you have been a member of the Bauernmesse choir at previous Gaufeste or are familiar with the various parts of the Bauernmesse and would like to join us at this Gaufest, there will be a practice on Saturday morning, July 6, from 11 am-noon in the Lincoln Room.  Be sure to come to practice already in Festtracht, since we will most likely go right to the cathedral from there.  If you have any questions, please contact me at
