S. G. Edelweiß-St. Paul was founded in 1961. Our purpose is to promote, through the instruction and performance of folk dancing, the appreciation and preservation of German and Austrian heritage, with the State of Bavaria as the main emphasis. We strive to uphold the customs and cultures of the Bavarian and Tyrolean people through the dances we perform and the clothing we wear. We have performed throughout the upper Midwest at many different celebrations and also across the United States and Canada. Our group has made two trips to Germany and Austria to learn more about the traditions, customs and dances. We have also performed at festivals held in Germany as a part of the celebrations of the groups we were visiting.
