I know what it means. Trying to find English sources that might refer to this day, and how they word it.

• Reich Proclamation Day?
• Foundation Day of the German Empire?
• Day of the Foundation/Proclamation of the German Empire?

yes, the term "Proclamation of the German Empire" seems quite commonly used.

That might be okay for Reichsgründung, but how would you incorporate the -tag portion of it?

By the way, as a general rule Wikipedia is not a reliable source, even by their own rules, so I'm looking for actual primary or secondary sources.

FWIW, auch der "Day of the founding of the German Empire" hat sonst (außer Tante Wiki) keinerlei Fundstellen auf englischsprachigen Seiten ...

Was meinst Du mit "Reichsgründungstag"?

a) Den Tag, an dem das 2. Deutsche Kaiserreich gegründet wurde?
b) Den Tag, an dem alljährlich Reichsgründungsfeiern abgehalten wurden?

yes, I think we need to know which one is meant. A quick look at Google shows that it could be the one in 1871. In which case, I have found the above sources.

unification of Germany
"Second Reich"
constitution of the German Empire
unification
German Empire (Kaiserreich)

MiMo, your question is very relevant, and one I hadn't considered, but appears to be b). The question was motivated by the Wikipedia article Reichsgründungstag (1) which appears to be about a (purported) celebratory anniversary day, but the associated Talk page (2) questions whether such a thing ever really existed. This may explain why I had such a hard time finding an English source (or a German one, with the b) meaning). Not sure if anyone has comments on whether such a Feiertag ever actually existed or not.

I'm interested as well in the a) meaning, for which none of jamqueen's sources appeared to have an exact English citation for the full expression with -tag, although considering just Reichsgründung a couple of them had "Proclamation of the German Empire" which I suppose would make the full translation "Day of the Proclamation of the German Empire", for the a) meaning at least.

Das wurde ganz offensichtlich über das Ende des Kaiserreiches hinaus sogar noch gefeiert, in den Universitäten mit einem dies academicus. Es scheint mitunter unübersetzt zu bleiben. Ansonsten findet man die unterschiedlichsten Formulierungen - offensichtlich keine feste Fügung.
