Our Groups

The active members of our organization have been the key to our success since our founding in 1890.  Our groups are very active promoting our German heritage, and the tradition of Karneval.  New participants are always welcome.

Amazonen

Beautiful smiles, costumes and dances.  Our Amazonen perform at our events and numerous festivals throughout the area.

Fanfaren

The sound of brass and the beat of the drums.  The RV Fanfaren Corps Chicago  has performed throughout the United States, Canada and Germany since 1956.

Prinzenpaar

Crowned annually, our Prinz and Princess reign over our festivities and represent our organization throughout the year.

Elferrat

The Elferrat, also known as the Council of Elders, was formed back in 1896 to assist the club officials with annual Karneval festivities.

Prinzengarde

The Prinzengarde was founded in 1981 and are  the  Honor Guard for our Prinzenpaar.
