Koblenz Karneval - Austin Style

  • Austin Saengerrunde 1607 San Jacinto Blvd Austin, Texas 78701 U.S.A. (map)

It's Karneval and we celebrate in Austin!

The so-called “Fifth Season” is a BIG DEAL in Austin’s German sister City, Koblenz. Officially, the festivities begin on 11/11 at 11:11am and culminate in the week before Lent, filled with Karneval activities: street parades, costumes, dance, comedy, comedy shows and political satire.

Austin-Koblenz Sister City Committee, in partnership with the German-Texan Heritage Society and Austin Saengerrunde brings this more than 800-year old German tradition to Texas!

Koblenz Karneval - Austin Style is a family friendly event, and the evening’s program is wide and varied and features authentic German food, student performances, costume contests, German live music, and much more.

Saengerunde Hall is located on the same location as Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd, with free parking across the street in the parking garage. The goal of the event is to raise funds for the ongoing Austin-Koblenz, Germany student exchanges.

Tickets include admission, food and 2 drink tickets and lots of fun.

Members of Austin-Koblenz Sister Cities, the German-Texan Heritage Society, or Austin Saengerrunde will receive discounted pricing. Sign up for memberships today!
