2014 – On the Road with 1KG Germania Karneval

The 2014-2015 1KG Karneval Campaign takes to the road! We start of with a trip to wild and wacky Las Vegas! There we will join with about 30 other Karneval Clubs from all over the USA and Canada. This is an annual celebration of the German American Mardi Gras Association (G.A.M.G.A.) in mid. January. We always have lots of fun connecting with old friends and meeting many new ones. Kinda like a big family reunion, with a couple crazy uncles thrown in! We have a road trip planned for February to visit our Concordia Karneval friends in Kitchener ON, Canada. In April we are going to Minnesota to celebrate at the Spielmannnsug Minneapolis 2X11 Anniversary Gala! If you want to join us on the road, please contact Ron Colwell for more information.

We are back in town for the next big 1KG Karneval event, our Maskenball on Saturday January 31st, 2014 at 7:11 PM. Imagine the funniest, craziest Masquerade Party you could think of, and you’ll be close to what you will experience! This year’s theme is “Creatures of the Night!”. Ghouls, Goblins, Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies …Oh My. For the low cost of only $20 per person, you will have music, dancing and royal ceremony! See the 1KG Prinzen Garde perform their awesome dance routines. You will also get to see “The One & Only Mannerballet” perform! This amazing troupe of performers will be the highlight of the night’s festivities, or the lowlight just depending, haha! Food, drinks and adult beverages will be available for purchase. For tickets, please contact Maria Geers at Germania events or via email at

It will be held again at the Radisson Hotel in Covington KY. If you’d like, join us for a mid-winter weekend staycation. Get a room for the weekend and join us for the Friday night Welcome Celebration for our friends and guest coming in from near and far, or just stay overnight Saturday and join us for our infamous Apres Ski After Party in the Hospitality Room!
