It's Karneval and we celebrate in Austin!

Austin-Koblenz Sister City Committee, in partnership with the German-Texan Heritage Society and Austin Saengerrunde brings this more 800-year old tradition to Texas!
Koblenz Karneval - Austin Style is a family friendly fundraising event, featuring German live music, kid's entertainment, facepainting, costume contests, an appearance of Prince and Confluentia, Weiberfastnacht tie cutting, authentic German food, and much more.
The goal of the event is to raise funds for the ongoing Austin-Koblenz student exchanges.


We foster friendly relations and understanding between the citizens of Austin and our sister cities around the world. 


Our program fosters Austin’s educational, cultural, and economic presence in the international community. We promote peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation — one individual, one community at a time
