The first Sängerfest was held in 1849 in Cincinnati, Ohio, with 118 singers attending. It has been held every three or four years since that time at various cities such as Pittsburgh, Louisville, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Buffalo, New Orleans and many others.
With the help and support of the Peoria Area Convention & Visitor's Bureau, the German-American Society began planning the Peoria event four years ago.
