Trachten Erhaltungs Verein Edelweiss is a Bavarian Customs Preservation Society established in 1958 by a group of 48 people dedicated to preserving the valued customs, costumes and folk dances of their German homeland. The Club also provides a means for German immigrants and German Americans to gather to share in those traditions and further friendships with the United States and Germany.
