On behalf of the members of the German Heritage Council of NJ, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here you will find an overview of previous festivals and our scholarship program.
The committee would like to thank all of you for supporting the festival over the past 34 years. I am proud of the fact that throughout those years, we have been able to present some of the greatest and most famous entertainers from Germany and Europe at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. The thousands and thousands of visitors made it possible to maintain this event at its highest level.
The event has also given us the opportunity and ability to award annual scholarships to promote the German language. As in the past, we're awarding numerous scholarships in 2008 and would like to thank THE RECREATION FARM SOCIETY, INC. for their generous donation towards this program.
Since 1974 the committee has put their heart and soul into the German Heritage Festival, but with deep regret I must inform you that the committee decided not to hold a festival this year.
The Annual German Heritage Festival has given us the opportunity to showcase our culture in a beautiful setting. Therefore, all of us hope we will be able to continue with this wonderful cultural event at the PNC Bank Arts Center in 2009.
Once again, I would like to thank you on behalf of the committee for your support in the past and hopefully in the future; Where We All Come Together.
