As part of that mission, we have undertaking hosting of regional and international events. We hosted the Mid-Atlantic Kinderfest in both 2011 and 2017. We are part of the Vereinigte Bayern von Gross New York that hosted the First Gaufest of Gauverband Nordamerika in 1967 where we won first prize. We co-hosted the 12. Gaufest in 1989. We are looking forward to hosting the 28th Gaufest at Harrah's Resort and Conference Center, July 8-11, 2021.
