Germania Club Downriver, a traditional German-American Social Club, is dedicated to the appreciation of our German-American cultural traditions; the support of the German-American community and other civic interests in the Detroit Metropolitan area; and the improvement and support of our members' families and social activities.

Germania Club Downriver is a Michigan Non-Profit Corporation, and maintains for the enrichment of it's members and the community the Johann Peter Zenger Heritage Library, named for a German immigrant newspaper printer and publisher to whom we owe an incredible debt of gratitude.
In 1735, Johann Peter Zenger was imprisoned in New York for his unyielding criticism of the injustices imposed by the Government, which at that time was still the English Crown.  Condemned to be publicly executed by burning, his successful and eloquent defense by Andrew Hamilton provided the ground-breaking precedent which established one of our highest privileges -- the Freedom of the Press in America.  The Johann Peter Zenger Library is one of the area's leading resources for information on German-American heritage and culture.

Membership in the Germania Club is by application and is open to prospective members willing to support the Club's purposes and values, and who are willing to participate in the strong bonds of friendship among the membership. Further details on joining can be found at the "Membership Info" link above.

We look forward to seeing you soon whether at our Wednesday Night Dinners or other events throughout the year. 
Please see our Calendar of Events on this website for more festival, dinner and event information.
