The Germania Club of Hamilton
150th Anniversary Year
About the Germania Club
The Germania Club was founded in 1864, making it one of the oldest German clubs in North America. The original club charter was signed in the name of Her Majesty Queen Victoria on October 2, 1884. In that spirit, it is our desire to promote German culture in the Greater Hamilton area.
The club is open to members, guests and anyone who would like to join and uphold itís long held traditions. Our club has a solid membership base that has in turn formed associated groups, such as the choir, fishers and hunters, mardi gras group, ladies auxiliary, schuhplattlers, chess club, skat card game club, and the Over 60 group.
The club holds many entertainment functions such as monthly dances, Oktoberfest, an annual Picnic, Anniversary Ball, New Yearís Eve Ball. Each associated group also has events through-out the year, making a exciting and vibrant atmosphere for the members.
