About Steingaden & the Lechgaufest Host Verein

HTV Almfrieden of Steingaden is the host of the 93. Lechgau-Trachtenfest this year. The latest issue of the Heimat- und Trachtenbote had an article in it about the Verein and the city of Steingaden. The article is linked at the end of this post. Almfrieden was started in 1909, and they are hosting their 9th Lechgaufest. Their Vereinsfahne was blessed that same year and has been through two restorations.

Who is hosting the Bayerischer Löwe in 2018? We are! In Bayern, no less!

How, you ask, will Gau-NA host the Bayerischer Löwe, especially since the other 12 Gauverbände who participate are all in Bayern?  Well, we'll just do it there! Read more about this great proposal that 2. Gauvorplattler Rudy Leschke put together, presented at the Delegates Meeting, and that the delegates voted to do. It's part of the "Mini Minutes" article in the May issue of the Gauzeitung.
