“The Plattduetsche Volksfest Vereen of New York & New Jersey (PVV) was established in 1875 and for over 130 years its affiliated clubs have helped to make their home, Schuetzen Park, a beacon for German-American culture in the metropolitan area. Whether it be through singing, dancing, language, sport, marksmanship, or social interest, each of our 13 member clubs strives to preserve a unique part of Germanic heritage, handed down through generations, complete with its traditions and customs.”
