Fasching is the German version of Mardi Gras, (bust out before you straighten up for Lent). We hold our Fasching each year on the first weekend in February. We will find the Narren coming out of the wood work to entertain us, singing by Die Singenden Wanderer, Das Männerballett performance, and the Barry Boyce Band for dancing music. This a great event that even the little kids enjoy. Don’t forget, wear a costume, you could win a prize. There will be costume prizes for men, women and children, along with one for couples and groups. Fasching is one of our best attended events and the large crowd makes the festivities great like a mid-winter costume party Oktoberfest. Of course the history of Fasching is ancient and has both pagan and Christian origins, (nothing to do with Oktoberfest). If you’re ever in Germany during Fasching you will see that New Orleans has nothing on Germany. Come and celebrate our Fasching and see what fun and craziness our own members deliver.
