The "Gauzeitung" is the official publication of the Gauverband Nordamerika. The newsletter is in its 25rd year of publication and is issued 6-8 times a year. It includes articles on many cultural aspects of Bavaria and Tirol, reports from the Gauverband officers, stories from member Vereine about their events such as Fahnenweihen, tours to Germany, and club anniversaries.
Articles from Gaufest Host-Vereine keep us up-to-date on planning. Some broad topics that have been covered in the "Gauzeitung" have been: Dance, Tracht (native costume), Alpine gardening, Alpine instruments, Geistliche (spiritual) Alpine music, old handcrafts, needlework, Bauermalerei (rosemaling), customs throughout the year, and letters/opinions.
Articles are often serialized. Black-and-white photos augment the articles, and after every Gaufest a four-page photo collage makes a wonderful remembrance of the 4-day event. At Christmas, a supplement allows Vereine and individuals to buy space to send holiday greetings to one another.
Advertising space for suppliers is sold. The "Gauzeitung" is informative and entertaining; anyone interested in Bavarian culture or events within North America should subscribe to this valuable publication.
An index to the articles published in Volumes 1-20 is available. The spreadsheet allows you to search by subject category, author, or word. The pdf is arranged by volume but you can still search for particular words.
Individual subscriptions to the Gauzeitung are available for $15 year. Vereine may order their subscriptions in bulk at a reduced price -- $10/year each, minimum 5 subscriptions.
Subscribers to the Gauzeitung receive the Trachtenkalender free of charge
