Edelweiss-Passaic, Inc., is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1957 in Passaic County, New Jersey for cultural, charitable, and educational purposes. 

Our mission is to promote and preserve the heritage and culture of Bavaria, as well as other regions of Germany, Austria, and other European countries, through their customs, traditions, dance, music, and ethnic costumes.

Our members range in age from 4 to 90 and we perform Bavarian Schuhplattler dances and other European folk dances in traditional Bavarian costume, in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.

We teach dances to adults and children at our weekly rehearsals, and hold themed events, such as Oktoberfest and Strauss Ball, throughout the year.
