Karneval/Mardi Gras Show

Everyone knows about Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Brazil but did you know that in Germany there is an even BIGGER Mardi Gras party and it’s called Karneval?

Karneval! or also known as “the fifth season of the year” is a festival that once a year brings Germany to life with a flurry of costumes, parades, singing and dancing. For many, it is a beloved time for celebration and fun with royal couples ensuring that good-natured tomfoolery is plentiful. But what is German Karneval really all about? And how is it celebrated in North America?

Come to the Karneval show and learn about some of the season’s culture and traditions and what to expect if you join in on the festivities. Sing-a-long’s, schunkeln and even a special battle of the band’s performance are just some of the fun you will see! 

Alaaf & Helau!
